Software Update Failed

David Diagnostician Spain Posted   Latest  

hello good I have a bmw which hit a stick and the airbags jumped. the airbag unit is broken and as it is a series f it would not let me change it and I had to carry out the insta programming protocol which is to update all the units​.​The problem comes when there are some that cannot be updated, it has been hung many times and I have tried many times without success such as the huh, the instrument panel etc ..So I don't know how to continue if I install a new airbag unit and follow the bmw programming protocol.

I guess the first question is what are you using as a diagnostic head? Pass-through, Snap-on, etc?? With F-series and above you really need to be using an I-com head. I know they are expensive but needed with the amount of information loaded into these newer cars.

The recommendation I have is to use an aftermarket tool to do just that module programming/ coding. Try the Iscan 3 or autologic.

David, se daño la computadora del airbag? si la computadora no se dañó, puede ser usada nuevamente, y solo limpia los códigos.

You will need an ICOM and direct connection to a router.
