BMW Esys and Esys Coding Guidance of a Beginners

A Beginners Guide for BMW Esys and BMW Esys Coding

What is BMW Esys? ESYS is the BMW development/engineering software for coding and flashing F-Chassis (and up) BMWs. This means it is mostly 2009 and up (depending on the model). Think of it like WinKFP and NCS Expert but for the really new cars. It is not related to ISTA at all. ISTA is the dealer service software, while ESYS and other BMW Standard tools programs are BMW engineering esys for EsysPlus3.8.1  With BMW Esys you can program/flash ECUs and encode them. In addition to that E-Sys offers a bunch of editors and viewers for editing the populating with data necessary for that. The architecture of the BMW Esys systems involved in the programming: Esys needs a correct populating with data for programming and encoding. Also necessary is a core program system that provides the services for communication and logistics. For the populating of data, a PDX template is necessary with populating of communication (diagnosis, protocol, connection information) for the board net system. The software logistics provides this template. In this template, the developer inserts his software to be transferred in ESys into PDX-Charger in the form of SWEs. The SWEs are generated from SWE-Generator. The PSdZ (“Programmiersystem der Zukunft” programming system of the future) provides the services necessary for programming and encoding. For the implementation of the communication services PSdZ uses the D-Server; for the implementation of the logistic services KIS(compatibility and information system [still not completed]) is used. The implementation on the CanCard interface happens directly by the D-Server, and the implementation of the communication over Ethernet/ZGW happens by the B2V-Server (BusinessToVehicle). To realize programming and/or encoding the developer needs a TAL (transaction list) which contains at least one SWDeploy transaction (for programming SWEs) or one CDDeploy transaction (for encoding). Furthermore, a FA (“Fahrzeugauftrag” vehicle order) is necessary. BMW Esys provides the TAL-Editor and FA/FP-Editor for the creation and editing of TALs and FAs, besides the module TAL-Calculating for calculating a TAL from a pair of actual system installation table (“SVT-Ist”) and reference system installation table (“SVT-Soll”); SVT abbreviates “System-Verbau-Tabelle”. Also in the module VCM, all elements (TAL, FA, SVT-Ist, and SVT-Soll) of the VCM (Vehicle Configuration Management) can be read. BMW Esys provides its own module Coding for encoding. Here the codable states are detected and executed in the module TAL- Processing. This coding data can be inspected in E-Sys in CAF-Viewer (CAF=CodingApplicationFile). The coding data read out from the ECU can be inspected and changed in the format of an FDL (Function Data List) in FDL-Editor. E-Sys is delivered (Stand 1.0.0) with a populating of data for programming and encoding of the eval board (diagnosis address 7E) by CANCardX. For programming and encoding by ZGW, an adequate populating of data must be obtained from the software logistic and imported in PDX-Charger. A Beginner’s Guide to BMW Esys Coding The BMW Esys is a software application released by BMW for coding applications on BMW F-series vehicles. The software allows users to disable and activate certain features on their F-series vehicles. Here are some of the features that you can activate/disable using the BMW E-sys software:
    • Lock unlock sound confirmation
    • Operate the navigation menu including watching DVDs when driving.
    • Display engine output and torque meter.
    • Cancel confirmation screen big screen boot delay.
    • Open the voice recognition function
    • Set up three kinds of Bluetooth phone ringtones.
    • Increasing the CIC memory address to 50.
    • Air-conditioned memory of the last off state.
    • Indoor cycling memories of the last time the state when the engine off.
    • A-pillar electric tailgate buttons and remote control key to close the power tailgate.
    • Increase shift paddles.
    • Modify the small screen to a large screen display.
    • Pdc displays vertically and horizontally.
    • Disable the seat belt status display – passenger seat.
    • Disable the seat belt status display – driver seat.
    • Disable seat belt reminder – passenger seat.
    • Disable seat belt reminder – driving position.
    • Disabled unfastened seat belt voice prompts – passenger seat.
    • Disabled unfastened seat belt voice prompts – driving position.
    • Intersection vehicle high beam automatic control.
    • Angel’s eyes open and cancel functions.
    • Turn off the engine start-stop function – turned on by default.
    • Gps time synchronization.
    • Foot open the back cover.
Coding using BMW Esys is the process of configuring the software system built-in on your BWM vehicle, this should not be mistaken with programming. Unlike programming, the risk of messing up the functions of your vehicle is minimal. However, you still need to be careful when configuring your vehicle using BMW E-sys. You should be knowledgeable of the changes and the codes that you’ve applied to your vehicle. If you’re still new to the software, you should have a guide to follow the basic processes. Here’s what you need to start coding using BMW Esys:
    • BMW Esys software (the latest version) and EsysPlus for coding
    • A dedicated laptop with at least Windows 10 with a minimum of 240 GB of free space
    • Backup utility for CAF files (optional)
For information on the ENET cable setup process, check out this guide: How to Set Up the ENET Cable and Esys for BMW Coding When coding using the BWM Esys software, you will need a reliable ENET cable to connect the software to your vehicle. Our OBD Interface ENET Cable is specifically for BMW vehicles. It works with many different BMW models. BMW owners purchase their vehicles because they want a top-of-the-line car that looks great, has plenty of power, and – perhaps more than anything else – is entirely under their control. By modifying various ESYS modules, you’ll have more control than you can imagine. Check out our BMW ENET below. If you wish some assistance in your BMW coding and programming, you can request remote coding assistance for a flat fee.
