BMW ISTA-D and ISIS – Similarities and Differences

This is good information for those who want to know if ISTA-D provides technical diagrams and instructions like ISIS/ICOM.

ISIS is a BMW server platform for dealers. All updates are downloaded to the ISIS.

From there the BMW ISIS updates ISID (diagnostics) tablets and ISSS (programming) if applicable.

The ISID runs an embedded windows xp OS.

Installed on the ISID is a program called ISTA-D (recent versions are codenamed ‘Rheingold’)

ISTA-D you can do all diagnostic functions, battery registrations etc etc. it also has wiring diagrams and guides on changing parts.

Some clever russians keep leaking the ISTA-D installer and it can easily be installed on any windows operating system. I can give you download links. They are around 10gb.

In ISTA-D you have a connection manager or how you wish to connect the computer to the odb port.

The common ones are:

ICOM
EDIABAS
OMITEC USB

ICOM is BMW official cable, its predocessor was an OPPS unit. An ICOM is more than just a cable however, it has its own network adapter, mac address, cpu, cooling etc etc.

EDIABAS is a communication protocal which requires you to have BMW Standard Tools installed aswell – which isnt a bad thing! This utilises comport access amongst other connection methods and is configured by an ini file. Most people use this method of connection as its cheap, you can get a K+DCAN cable for under $50 USD now. Just do your research first as there ar bad clones about!

OMITEC is also an original USB interface. These are very rare. K+DCAN cable are copies of the OMITEC cable.

Update: Thinking it can be used on a Mac also… I use a Mac sometimes no problem with a windows VMware XP virtual machine and ISTA-D installed.

As I said there is no better diagnostic software. Its dealer level software and It’s freely available now all over the Internet. Plus it’s very user friendly!

So price is Cable + Windows XP CD key for the virtual machine…

Hope that helps.

BMW ista Windows 10 install:
Setup on Windows 10 64-bit:
After the Windows 10 update (which failed the first two attempts because it turned out the BIOS needed an update first) most applications were fine.
By simply revisiting the COM port settings for my K + DCAN USB to set back to COM9 , minimum buffer sizes and minimum latency Rheingold ran perfectly.
Loader V3.2 and ISTA-P was a bit more tricky. I re-ran the Network Config Tool. I tried Loader V4.3. No joy. However I did it nicely and ISTA-P runs nicely too, and with the excellent Loader V4.3 .
The Windows Networking and Networking Toolkit for Networking and Networking.
—> The setting was to go into Network Settings , select the USB Loopback which has been renamed ” Ethernet 2 ” and rename it to “USB” then go into its settings just like you would ENET lead and set the IPV4 IP to 169.254.0.8 with a mask of 255.255.0.0

Tip: ista p install help
Question: Where (what path) do you place the SDP contents to support flashing from ISTA?  Also, where do you place the BLP contents as well?

Part 3: BMW icom cable for ista

BMW-icom-cable-for-ista

This part is for those who are looking for a decent bmw icom cable: K+DCAN or ENET or ICOM A2/ ICOM Next

In summary,
It depends on your purpose (diagnostic or coding or programming) and model (Exx or Fxx or others).
For Coding, you need different Tools, NCS Expert / SP-Daten for E-Series and E-Sys / PSdZData for F-Series.
All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with cheap DCAN Cable for E-Series and cheap ENET Cable for F-Series.

For Programming (Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for both E-Series and F-Series cars, or you can use WinKFP for E-Series and E-Sys for F-Series. For E-Series Programming, you will need an ICOM, but for F-Series Programming, you can use ENET Cable.

For Exx- Series:
Interface = K+DCAN Cable (OBDII to USB) or ICOM
ECU Data Files = SP-Daten
NCS Expert = Coding Software
WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software
EDIABAS = Low-Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP
For Fxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini, & Rolls-Royce:
Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM
ECU Data Files = PSdZData
E-Sys = Coding Software
E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software

About: BMW ICOM
ICOM A (also ICOM A2, ICOM A3, ICOM Next A): main interface
ICOM B: adapter for programming multimedia in E series
ICOM C: adapter for old BMW with round 20 pin diagnostic plug
ICOM D: adapter for motorcycles
ISTA+ (AKA Rheingold or ISTA-D)
DIAGNOSTICS for All Vehicles
PROGRAMMING for F/I/G/RR & MINI, but requires an ICOM
ISTA-P
PROGRAMMING traditionally for all chassis, but is being phased out by August 2017, except for legacy E-series.
Replacement ECU’s must be NEW
YOU HAVE TO KNOW before you buy ICOM A2 or ICOM A3 or ICOM Next:

ICOM A vs ICOM A2 vs ICOM A3
Modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. And robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments. It works better in cooling, runs faster and works more stable, not easier broken than older ICOM A.

ICOM A3 can program all units for all BMW series expect media system, and work more stable and has stronger compatibility than ICOM A2, A1.

ICOM NEXT vs the old ICOM
-> much faster in BMW F and G series ..
-> supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card.

ICOM A3 vs ICOM Next
Reply 1: Both of these have the same hardware. None of them are clones of anything also. A3 is fully china version of ICOM, there is no original version looking like this crap. NEXT is just looking as genuine NEXT, but with old A1/A2 hardware inside, like A3.
Reply 2: I recommend buying an original Icom next. It is priced roughly at 500 euro. Take in consideration that you will probably work on cars that are worth 30-40k euro or maybe more and if your chinese icom fails you even once, you will be spending a lot of money on a bricked ecu.
Reply 3: You can have a Icom Next HQ clone if you don’t have much budget of it. This tool handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely, much faster in BMW F and G series and if flashing the complete vehicle. It supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. will be compatibility for future cars. Also, it has a better wifi card and USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 (USB 3.0 is theoretically more than ten times faster than USB 2.0. We need usb 2.0 or usb 3.0 flash drive formatted with FAT32.)
ICOM NEXT A vs ICOM A2
ICOM Next wins in price!!!
2019 ICOM Next A+B+C price: 359.00 usd
ICOM A2+B+C price: 519.00 usd
ICOM Next A wins in performance!!
->handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely

BMW ICOM Next wins in speed!!
->faster startup and standard wifi
->much faster in BMW F and G series ..
->much faster if flashing the complete vehicle
(Flashing of NBT is not faster with icom next its same like icom A and A2)

Next wins in future cars!
->will be compatibility for future cars
-> supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos.

ICOM Next wins in connection!
-> has a better wifi card
->has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0

note: USB 3.0 vs. USB 2.0
The USB 2.0 standard offers a theoretical maximum signaling rate of 480 megabits per second, while USB 3.0 defines a maximum rate of 5 gigabits per second. In other words, USB 3.0 is theoretically more than ten times faster than USB 2.0

We need usb 2.0 or usb 3.0 flash drive formatted with FAT32.
ICOM Next wins in PCB design!

FAQs BMW diagnosticcodingprogramming with ICOM A2+ISTA

Look here: questions and answers of BMW diagnostic/coding/programming by ICOM emulators

BMW-ICOM-A2

1. Is it safe to update software with ISTA on all BMW’s that come through my shop ? What problems can I run into ? (assuming i have a good power supply for car and laptop)

– Depends on many factors, but as long as you use an BMW ICOM and a good power supply, you should be OK. Uobdii.com is a good site that’s reliable

2. Can updates on comfort mode, brick an ECU (or more) ?

– As long as you stick to the proposed measures plan in Comfort Mode and your setup (laptop, software etc.) is solid, there shouldn’t be any opportunity to brick an ECU.

3. If updates are safe, on what series can i do them ? F, G for sure..can i do E ?

F, G and I series and for Motorrad models with vehicle electrical system 2020 (BN2020). E Series programming is not supported in ISTA+, use ISTA/P or WinKFP for individual modules.

4. Updates for Navi maps, can I do them in ISTA also ? Again, is it safe ? Do you recommend E-Sys more for this job ?

– I have not attempted this with ISTA+, but would assume process is similar to ISTA/P. I’d stick with ESYS strictly for ease of use.

5. What aftermarket power supply do you recommend for programming, coding(to use with car) ? From what i read, for E-series without Efficient Dynamics must be around 40A, and must not go over 14.2v, while for E-series/F-series with Efficient Dynamics must be around 80A, and must not go over 14.8v. Is this correct ? If so, is there a power supply that can fit both situations ? I did some research about this, but i think it is an important issue and must be correctly addressed, so I would trust more an answer from you guys. Is Mean Well SE-1000-15 ok for both situations ?

– Schumacher 700A should fit all requirements. While there are many recommendations, unless you’re 100% comfortable modifying a Power Supply to use with the cars, I wouldn’t do it. If you do, Google”Server Power Supply Conversion” and you’ll get a lot of information.

6. I have an BMW ICOM A2 with ISTA. I understand that E-Sys is more complex than ISTA, regarding coding and programming for F-Series, as NCSExpert and WINkfp are for E-Series. You can do codingin ISTA also right ? for all series ? Or ISTA does less ?

– You need to differentiate between coding and “encoding”. ISTA+ will do “encoding” depending on the programming required. That is not the same as coding (features). I don’t think I’d say ESYS is more complicated than ISTA+, each are different in the way they approach coding/programming.

Ways to connect BMW E-SYS to ICOM or ENET cable

BMW E-SYS connection tips and guides for all those with ICOM cables or ENET Ethernet interface…

BMW ICOM settings for E-SYS:

Step 1: Run ISTA-D and check ICOM IP (occasionally, slightly different of Windows IP 169.254.55.70)
Possibly iToolRadar will do exactly the same

BMW-E-SYS-1

Step 2: Run Easyconnect
Form: REMOTE
IP: 169.254.55.83 (edit file ip_dv.txt and add IP)
MODE: OBD_ab625
ICOM Lock
Check

BMW-E-SYS-2

Step three: Run E-sys

BMW-E-SYS-3 BMW-E-SYS-4

Connect through ICOM cable/Ethernet interface (tcp://169.254.55.83:50160)

Esys Connection Questions & Answers:

Question & Answer 1:
Q: I used the ISTAD method to obtain the IP address. However, I was not able to get EasyConnect utility to work. Fortunately, I was still able to get ESys working and coded the RDC_Safety and blinker # back to what it was before.
A: EasyConnect just to displays IP. You can use ZGW to ID as well as iToolRadar to lock.
Also, trimmed data has no affect on connection. Using the incorrect launcher chassis, target & interface, or neither external charger or running engine to provide power to certain modules, can result in the ECU_ETHERNET map error.

Question & Answer two:
Q: I connected via ICOM/Ethernet not URL.
As for the connection issue, I’m not sure what it was but I was able to to get it sorted out.
A: URL is used for flash programming, but you will use VIN for ENET and ICOM/ENET for ICOM to code.

Question & Answer 3:
Q: Why is url for flashing ?
Can i also take ICOM/ENET for flashing, with a icom clone ?
A: Actually only ZGW must be flash programmed via IP.
ENET can be used with E-sys or ISTA-P to flash.
ICOM (including clone) can be used with E-sys, ISTA-P, or ISTA+.

Question & Answer four:
Q: Which settings i must choose for flashing in e-sys (URL or ICOM/ENET) ?
A: I believe it is still URL, but you must use DHCP (either software or router).

Question & Answer 5:
Q: I did exactly as mentioned to connect ICOM to OBDII and to my computer, but then when I get to connect using ESys, I got the following error message:
“Connection check failed. Gateway/ECU are not correctly connected or not responding. However Function using ODX-Data can be used. [G188]”
A: With ICOM, you connect by means of ICOM. You will need to lock IP with program like EasyConnect or Itool Radar
With ENET, you connect through VIN.
You connect by means of gateway URL if flashing. That error message occurs when you have incorrect IP.

Question & Answer 6:
Q: For ICOM, I was using ITool Radar to lock the IP, then in ESys, I used the IP found in ITool Radar to connect. Am I doing the right thing? Or do I still need to use ICOM ISTA to get the IP address??
And with ENet, after plugging in everything, my computer failed to recognize any connection from the Ethernet port. What I mean is that, there wasn’t even a flashing light on the port that indicates my computer is connected to something, not normal, right?
A: For ICOM, you do not need to separately use ISTA+; that is just another way to discover IP.
With ENET, you should get fallback IP (169.x.x.x)

Question & Answer 7:
Q: So if I don’t need ISAT+ to get the IP, then any clue why I still get that error on ESys after I press connect? Seems like I am getting the proper IP address off ITool Radar… any chance that my car computer is not responding?
And with ENET, it is not getting any fallback coz my computer don’t even know it is plugged in… no steady nor blinking lights on the port…
Some others suggested that my car computer could be in some kind of safe/protection mode that it blocks external connection… is there such thing?
A: With ICOM, you can certainly try with ISTA+ to see if you get a distinct IP to lock with Itool Radar. For ICOM A2, are you selecting 4th interface form and putting in the identical IP?

For ENET, are you selecting 5th option (VIN)? Are you getting anything populated?
Make sure motor is running if car is not on a Charger.
Third party Security Suites (Antivirus / Firewall / etc) are disabled
LAN Adapter is set for DHCP and not using a Static IP.
The Target Connection Window should not be blank (It should show multiple target connections for different chassis’)

How to convert HALOGEN to LCI HEADLIGHT with a ICOM cable

It’s a HALOGEN TO LCI HEADLIGHT Tutorial!!!!

Excuse my English I hope this help some of you guys!

In this site you will see the diagram for wiring!

Now after you know what your going to do with the wiring uninstall the frm and install frm2.

You will need NCS expert and Winkfp and inpa! and the icom cable obd to the computer! when you get the cable just read instruction and you ill be fine.. but just in case if your cable didnt bring the instruction here is how to program the cable make sure the computer read the cable if not download the driver after your pc read cable go to start on computer right click properties, device manager,then PORT click on it look for the cable then double click then a window will open lick on port setting (tap) click on advance at the bottom and make sure to set COM to COM1 and the latency to 1 it should be on 16 from default click ok and you are ready to go!

After you install all this software you need to open NCS expert to Change VO and VIN to yor frm2. And then program it!

OK now if you have AHL you need to add this VOs $522 and $524 to CAS and FRM and change production date that is going to be like this for example (#1205) you have to change it to at least #0307. and if you have just xenon add $522 and production date #0307. NOW question is how to do it.

open NCS expert on file tap load profile select expert mode F1,F3 select chassis e89 and select CAS now F2 (ENTER FA) select chassis again then enter vin# of the car

now a new window will open with a list of numbers.. is gonna say attribute ADD and OK at the bottom now we are going to add $522 and $524 and click in top of the first one that is the production date and hit the delete bottom on your keyboard and add the #0307 and click OK then F6 back then choose F4 choose CAS then F2 change job to FA_WRITE and F3 execute job and you are done!

Now you have to pass that information to “NFRM”

1.open NCS expert

2.File-Load profile

3.select EXPERMODE

4.press F1

5.press F3

6.select E89<for E90>

7.select CAS

8.F6 back

9.now you will be able to see your (FG) VIN # at top and (FA) VO

10.press F4<CHOOSE ECU>

11.select NFRM

12.after that select F2 chenge Job

13 choose FA_WRITE

14.F3 executive job wait a little bit and it will say courin beenet or coded ended something like that! now your VO are the same CAS and NFRM

NOW to change VIN

I did it the same way as CAS but instead of choose FA_WRITE i Choose FG_SCHREIBEN

1.open NCS expert

2.File-Load profile

3.select EXPERMODE

4.press F1

5.press F3

6.select E89<for E90>

7.select CAS

8.F6 back

9.now you will be able to see your (FG) VIN # at top and (FA) VO

10.press F4<CHOOSE ECU>

11.select NFRM

12.after that select F2 chenge Job FG_SCHREIBEN then F3 execute Job

now to make sure everything is good Go back to the main menu (or restart ncs-expert) and get the vehicle order from the “NFRM” module. Make sure NFRM returns YOUR VIN and YOUR VO. We want the VIN (FG) and VO (FA) to be the same in both CAS and NFRM. To do this same steps load profile expertmode F1,F3 select chassis and select “NFRM” NOT CAS!!! and it should be your VIN and VO the same as CAS.

Now to program NFRM you have to use Winkfp but first you need to know the part number of the NFRM using inpa that is gonna show on inpa FRM_70. go to inpa folder and look for inpaload select chassis and a window will open and select the first one functional jobs then f2 indet in there you will look for FRM_70 and copy the ZUB that is the part number IT should say for example (9204527) this is a example copy that number down and close inpa. now open Winkfp and choose confort mode F1 enter ZUSB put the number that you wrote down here and ill look for your frm automatically click ok then F4 Enter Vin put your car vin # click ok and then update ZUSB look for the one that gives you in the first step for ex(FRM2) then click on done! if it gives you an error 106 is because you dont have the cable plug in into the car! after that lick on F3 Prog. ZB UPdate and wait until is done and you are done!

Now to make sure BMW Diagnostic Software NFRM is default in NCS expert

load profile then go back to file and click edit file and click on FSW/PSW and uncheck the option “FSW/PSW manipulate with FSW_PSW.MAN” then click ok and choose profile info and on the name put whatever name that will remember you that thats the profile to code to factory any ecu using NCS expert then click ok and ok again that windows will close and click file save as and put the name that you choose.. Then F1, F3 choose chassis then CAS then F4 choose NFRM then F2 SG_codieren then F3 done!

Now to code with NCS expert you will need to create a FSW_PSW TRC file..

here is a video on Youtube but just in case if the video is not working ill write it down

To do this you have to Open NCS expert load profile expertmode

same F1,F3 select chassis select CAS F6 back choose ecu F4 NFRM and change job F2 CODIERDATEN_LESEN then f3 execute job now dont close ncs expert and go to ncs expert folder then to work folder and you will see that there is a FSW_PSW trc file open the file change what ever you need to change and after you change everything save the file.. go to file and click save as and write FSW_PSW.MAN now go back to NCS expert and Click on file edit file and go to FSW_PSW click on it and make sure to check the option FSW_PSW manipulate with FSW_PSW.MAN click ok then choose ECU F4 select the Ecu that you choose to read with CODIERDATEN_LESEN earlier and now change to to SG_codieren and F3 execute job and You are DONE coding!

THANK YOU FOR READING I HOPE THIS WILL HELP SOMEONE I SPENT 2 WEEK TO LEARN ALL THIS AND NOW I WANT TO SHOW IT TO YOU GUYS!

All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with cheap DCAN Cable for E-Series and cheap ENET Cable for F-Series.

For Programming (Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for both E-Series and F-Series cars, or you can use WinKFP for E-Series and E-Sys for F-Series. For E-Series Programming, you will need an ICOM, but for F-Series Programming, you can use ENET Cable.

For Exx- Series:

Interface = K+DCAN Cable (OBDII to USB) or ICOM

ECU Data Files = SP-Daten

NCS Expert = Coding Software

WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software

EDIABAS = Low-Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP

For Fxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini, & Rolls-Royce:

Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM

ECU Data Files = PSdZData

E-Sys = Coding Software

E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software

How to do BMW G Series Coding with BMW ICOM cable

Topic: How to do BMW G Series Coding with BMW ICOM cable

I’ve collect all useful tips of BMW G series coding on the web and make a write-up here. Hope it helps.

Q: Is it possible to code BMW G-series and wich software? E-sys is not possible?

A: Coding G series is with ESYS. I think you need pro launcher from Tokenmaster. It was written somewhere on the forum but maybee you can ask Tokenmaster.

Q: Have any good success if G series coding?

A: I have successfully coded G-series. You need Pro Launcher.

Q: Do we know if it’s possible at all to code the G-series?

A: Coding is possible with E-SYS, but problem is the mapping/trimmed CAFD’s on new ECU’s. But for excisting ECU’s not a problem (BDC_BODY, NBT2, ACSM etc.)

Q: Can I code G11 with Esys?

A: Tried to code G11 today.

My I-level is S15A-16-07-506, used data 5.94.

I found S15A target in Esys.

S15A psdzdata covers F090/G001/G002/G011/G012/G030/G031/G032/RR11/RR12/RR31

Q: Could you share with me your launcher pro’s token and activation code ?

A: This is not possible. Token and activation code are valid for 1 PC only. This is how it works: you ask Token Master, he sends token, you install Launcher Pro with the token, Launcher generates request code, you send it to Token Master, he sends you activation code in response.

Q: Which E-sys can be used for G series coding?

A: E-Sys:
S15A psdzdata covers G001/G002/G011/G012/G013/G030/G031/G032
S15C psdzdata covers G008/G038

Q: Which tool for G series?

A: I’m perfectly aware what ICOM Next from OBD2TOOL is and I have it.

Icom next runs a gigabyte lan port. So if router and laptop also running gigabyte ports you increase speed, that’s only if the car and software allow it.

Also the Icom next is faster for G series cars which I suspect also have gigabyte Ethernet bus.

Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card.

Ps. It’s a copy, from http://www.obd2tool.com/search-BMW+ICOM.html

Q: Which BMW ICOM can i use for G30?

A: Any icom will work , but to be safe with f,g,i series vehicles , use a dedicated router as kafas huh and a few other modules will crash if you do not use a router it handles the switches for Ethernet as those modules use more than 1 path way , in short it uses all 4 two pair wires and without router not good , this has worked for me for some time now good luck. note my router does not connect to wan

Q: What tool is used for G30 flash or coding?

A: Flashed all Cars with BMW ICOM Next and Online Aos with DHCP over Router. Since that i have Never any Problems with NBT or other. Flash E/F/G with this Setup.

Note that Online Aos is the online version of the BMW software for Diagnostic, Programming any many other things.

Q: How to do G30 coding?

A: BMW G30 has a quite a lot of differences in ECU, so wanted to share my findings here.

Note:

– This is Not a comprehensive list of options But options that are unique from options standard across the recent models.

– Read SVT does Not work, use Read ECU instead.

– Ensure vehicle engine is running before you press Read ECU button otherwise you won’t get the full list of ECUs.

ECU: SAS [Driver Assistance Systems]

ACC Default Distance: C_Abstandsstufe_init -> Set to 2

Blind Spot Detection: Note that G30 has a multiple Blind Spot Detection Modules, and you need to set Speed setting for each. For each radar module there is a separate KMH and MPH Setting so 6 in all.

E.g.

C_LCA_SWW_Vmin_KMH – set to 55km/h

C_LCA_SWW_Vmin_MPH – set to Option 0 (Werte 22)

ECU: HU_NBT [Head Unit]

G30 has a hardware limitation and max Video-In-Motion you can get via E-sys is 63 km/h (around 39 mph). After following standard VIM coding, Ensure that

SPEEDLOCK_SPEEDVALUE_MIN: Werte=1F

SPEEDLOCK_SPEEDVALUE_MAX: Werte=3F

ECU: DKOMBI [Instrument Cluster]

Remove Speed Limit Sign from HUD: HUD_SPEED_LIMIT_ENABLE DKOMBI

ECU: IHKA [Climate Control] – Not Tested

This encoding value determines whether the previous settings (Last Function) should be used when switching from the Auto mode to Manual mode, in manual mode, or whether the settings from “Auto” should be used when changing from the car to the manual mode.

LAST_FCT_AUTO_MAN

Default: AKTIV (Active) = 01

HO coding in order to be able to manipulate front-end adjustment of the ventilation (if necessary, in the case of special large-scale customer requests)

3003 -> VERTRIMMUNG_BEL_FRONT (Front Face)

keine = 00

3003 -> VERTRIMMUNG_FUSS_FRONT (Front Feet)

keine = 00

OPTIONS

keine = 00 (No)

kaelter = 01 (Colder)

waermer = 02 (Warmer)

ECU: BDC_Body -> 1DF7 – Comfort Access Settings

3514 PMaster Has Comfort Access Related Settings

ECU: ACSM – Safety Related Settings

Settings for SeatBelt Reminders and such
