If you still have the old factory head unit and the boards are intact this thread shows how a guy removed the boards and plugged them into the factory plugs and put it in a bag and stuffed it in the dash.

Would be a work around till the ibus adapter gets in..

For some, the sound is switched off after 30 s.

This can be avoided by setting PollingTimeout to off.

Everything I read shows people using this app to keep their dsp amp running so you should be good to go from what I can find on it. I'm stopping for now, getting headache reading all that stuff

Hopefully your adapter will arrive soon.

I got my IBUS USB stick plugged in and temporarily connected to the CD player connector using a long USB extension cord and it seems to work great, until it didn't

All was going well and I was enjoying the coding of the settings and increasing the % of my DRLs since they are LEDs, I bumped them up from 13% (default setting?) to 40%. Things were going well on my little test drive around the neighborhood.

Got back in garage and I don't know when it happened but ,my DRL feature is totally gone now

Can't seem to figure out what zapped it out. High beams work so I know the bulbs and circuits are OK.

Here is my screen



Anyone know how to get the reset buttons off the right side text?

When I try to adjust the "Distance" units setting the program says that IBUS has shut down, so you see KM in the OBC screen but in my instrument display it says miles.

Also, the OBC screen shows km for mileage, converting my miles to KM.

After a while I did get an Oil Temp reading which was nice.

A not so nice discovery was that the brand new Behr thermostat I put in is showing about 228*F operating temp and in the last months since installing it I have not gained back any MPG! For that matter I'd rather have the old 185*F aftermarket cheap unit back if I'm not going to get any more MPG running this 230*F hot thing!

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

That's why I'm running the older app. It works flawless for me and the text was jumbled on the never version.

1.5.2 is what I am using.

Your supposed to be able to press the a reset button in the coding section to put everything back the way it was.

I don't use any of the coding features since I have my X5 coded EXACTLY the way I want it with my coding software and don't want to risk messing anything up. Chicken I know but in my case its just not worth the risk messing things up since it took me forever to get it the way I wanted it.

But according to the docs that reset or emergency or something like that button in the coding section resets it back to before it changed anything.

Thanks Crowz!

I will go to the reset button in coding and see if that helps.

Good luck with it I'm headed out to make a grocery store run but will check back on this when I get back if your still having problems with it.

I can email you the old version if its not available on his site.

I believe those reset buttons are for resetting the CONS 1 and CONS 2 along with AVG SPEED to the left of each of those reset buttons.

Thanks Crowz. I may take you up on the program or maybe I still have it on the thumb drive. Will check.

Going to have something to eat then will go back out to work on it.
