BMW ICOM A2 emulator system red indicator flash

Before go deep into the topic today, let’s check the BMW ICOM ICOM A and ICOM B module indicator and meanings.

14-1 14-2

It is not different to see that if the Red LED indicator of either ICOM A or ICOM B emulator flashes, the Rheingold ISTA-D ISTA-P software will report error and fail to communicate with vehicle.

Problem& Symptom:

BMW ICOM A2+B+C diagnostic system A2 module red indicator blinking when connected to vehicle with LAN cable.

Solution:

2 solutions provided by experienced BMW ICOM diagnostic system experts:

BMW E/F/G/I series programming with 2017 ICOM Next Ista-P 3.60

2017 BMW diagnostic software is verified that ISTA-P can program not only E Series, but also F, G and I series. So, which Ista-p version and which BMW Icom can work perfectly with BMW E/F/G/I models? Read the write-up collected by Laura.

Which ISTA-P version is verified?
2017.03 BMW ISTA-D 4.04.12 ISTA-P 3.60.2.001(engineer mode) is the latest BMW software confirmed 100% to work without any issues with BMW E/F/G/I models programming

Which bmw icom works better?
2017 BMW ICOM Next WiFi version is the best option for bmw diagnostics and programming.
ICOM Next is faster than the old bmw icom. It is also better built IMHO.
And 2017 Next is WIFI available also.
It handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely.
Gets the job done much faster if flashing the complete vehicle.
Another benefit to Next will be compatibility for future cars.

New models with production date
Benefit: The new G01, G32, RR11, RR12 can be dealt with.
Vehicles: G01, G32, RR11, RR12
Update of navigation maps in ISTA 4
Benefit: Update of the map data by ISTA 4 in motor vehicles with navigation system.
Planned for ISTA 4.06.1x. Up to then, the update can be performed with ISTA/P.

What about the I levels contained?

RR01 (RR1, RR2, RR3) RR01-17-03-500

What is I-level?
The I-Level (aka I-Step) is the Integration Level of your car, which represents a package of firmwares for all your modules, and it corresponds to the version of ISTA/P last used to program your vehicle.

How to read I-Level using BMW E-sys?
To determine your I-Level, go to VCM Module => VCM Master Tab => click Read under I-Steps:

The I-Step (current) is the one you want to match when you select the CAFD from the Detect CAF for SWE options (e.g. F001-08-09-550):

When you lost power in the middle of FDL Coding your CAFD, it became corrupted. What I am having you do is insert the same CAFD in it’s default generic state and then coding it based on your specific Vehicle Order (Production Date and Option Codes) so in the end you will have exactly what you started with before the power failure and CAFD corruption.

As I have repeatedly stated, so long as one isn’t coding the BMW ICOM A2 module, you should code with the engine running, and will you never have to worry about loosing vehicle power mid-coding, unless of course you run out of gas.

BMW ICOM A2 software error “Failed to start ISTA” (solved)

When I enabled coding/programming in BMW ICOM A2 diagnostic software ISTA–D, just for comfort reasons, all in one, but unluckily, the error message popped up as follows:

Failed to start ISTA.

Please make sure your ISTA configuration is valid.

In doubt reset any non standard ISTA configuration and reinstall ISTA

Searched lots of info online and finally SOLVED! ISTA+ works like a charm!

Just add this to the configuration file:

2. If your BMW ICOM HDD got error “database version mismach, the found database version are not compatible”, just need to set the ISTA/D language as American English

BMW ICOM A2+B+C Compare with ICOM A+B+C

Compared with ICOM A+B+C, BMW ICOM A2+B+C has the some special features. The modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. Robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments.

To protect the MOST connector, the ICOM B for vehicles with optical MOST access will be equipped with a soft cover made of rubber instead of the former plastic cap. The ICOM C for old series with a diagnostics socket will be additionally equipped with an approx. 20 cm long cable, which facilitates the connection of the BMW ICOM A2 and makes storage in the engine compartment easier.

If your BMW ICOM firmware works normally, then DO NOT need to update. If your firmware is not compatible with your software very much, then need to update the firmware. Because every new version ICOM software will change a little. Firmware need update so that can fit the latest ICOM software perfectly.

How to connect BMW ICOM A2 Wifi

I consulted BMW ICOM A2 from the professional technician mainly because I read much information in BMW forums telling that the only difference between ICOM A2 & ICOM is the hardware.ICOM A is the basic component. In physical terms, it would provide the vehicle diagnostic interface OBD II interface, and provide adaptive integration to the repair shop network interfaces required. Voltage is provided by KL30 by vehicle interface. ICOM A requirement of the electrical operation of a minimum voltage of 8V. Only the supplied voltage exceeds the minimum limit in order to ensure a stable function.
