I pulled over, contemplating switching to 0, but then I remembered that someone else had a similar issue in here. Restarted under map 2, drove the rest of the way home without any issues, and not using CC.

Aside from the JB4 Beta with map 2, I'm totally stock. I've been running it for a week without any issues up until when I turned on CC for the first time.
Also very glad to see that I'm not the only one. Car shut down 4 times on me. Drivetrain malfunction! Cleared after restart. I also noticed that cruise control was finicky and wouldn't always work. However I had Auto-clear (menu 4) set to 1 and so could never get any codes. Have since set to 0 and the issue has not reappeared and my cruise control is working well. Hopefully it's a menu 4 setting issue and this can be figured out and quickly.

Ok good to hear. So as long as it's 0, yours has been working fine? I can't remember if mine happened on 0 or 1, but now it's on 0. I'm out of town until Friday, so I won't be able to check. Are all your other selections (aside from map number) on 0 as well?

Yes mine has been working fine since I set to 0 about a week and half ago. Longest I've gone without a transmission error/shut down. All settings at 0 except map.

Default Top speed help - 08-30-2016, 06:45 PM

Now that we have access to this new found power, is there anything in the works to get rid of or increase the top speed limiter?

Running map 2, with menu 4 (code auto-clear) set to 0. No issues since I set menu 4 = 0. For boost gauge, I made the mistake of forgetting that the menu gauge (speedo) starts from setting "0" so I was only pushing the BC button once, when in JB4 menu mode, instead of twice when attempting to access the boost gauge menu (menu 2 = 1). I thought mine wasn't working until I realized my mistake. Hopefully this is your issue too...otherwise not sure why yours doesn't work.

Default Cruise Control - 09-05-2016, 09:53 PM

I noticed my cruise control failing saturday night myself. Thought I was hitting something on the dash. Running Map 2 on the interface. Have not checked setting 4 to clear codes yet. Will do that tomorrow.

I did notice I was not getting significant pull from the car only running 93 octane. Once I put in an Octane booster, I felt the Pull which I was experiencing on the old Stage 2 (non BETA)

Running this with Dinan Intake, intercoolers and exhaust. Deleted Carbon filters and BadBlack high flow air filters. Also have a Pedal Box on the car set in yellow mode with first Red light as anything higher than that seems to slow the car down..

Will check the level 4 setting and see if that fixes the Cruise control. Maybe that should be set to Zero from BMS for the time being on other customers who may not be researching this thread.

No error lights right now, KNOCK ON WOOD.

...Mike

Photos are all in the installation post. If you need tuning help you'd need to post a JB4 log.

Hello,

Brand new here but considering buying this JB4 Full Beta kit. I have a 2011 550xi M-Sport that I am looking to tune up and this looks to be a first step. I am not sure about what I need to do. I see there is Harness Type A and Type B and I am not sure which I should even be getting for my vehicle. Likewise I am looking at adding cold air induction system, intercoolers, exhaust and not sure where to go. I am coming off a fully tuned GT-R so my knowledge of BMW's is still weak. Sadly I needed a family car, but I still want it to go faster. Any help with the JB4 side of things would be greatly appreciated.

Just start by installing the TMAP wires connections (like a Stage1) and go from there. Should be TypeA harness for 2011 but you can always check your TMAP connectors to verify.

Thank you Terry!

If I order the wrong harness by accident, will I be able to change them out? Pretty excited to get some kind of decent performance out of this sedan.

You need the right harness for it to fit/work. Photo of TMAP sensor? We can quickly check it for you.

You, set it to zero and cruise control is fine now. Have not hooked up the BCM or fuel wires yet. Figured I would let the beta testing run its course first.

Running stage map 2 on the car with 93 octane and an octane booster. I notice a significant performance boost with octane increased.

No errors lights, knock on wood. Also, found an iPad holder that mounts to passenger side seat bolt. This allows the BMS booth tooth data logging to be displayed right next to shifter. A neat idea for anyone that ordered this option.

JB4 is setup to run more advance than the Stage2 as we no longer spoof the IAT signal to lower advance. You'd need to datalog the specific situation though if you want actual numbers.
