DIY diagnose BWM motorcycle with K+DCAN Cable & ICOM D
Recently, I just bought an BMW Icom D interface from obd365.com; thought it has the KL15 problem, so I decided to rearrange all wires by myself. And luckily, i managed to use K+DCAN Cable & ICOM D for BMW Motorcycle diagnosis.
Device i used:
ICOM D interface
K+Dcan USB cable
(but i suggest ADS5600 BMW motorcycle scanner if you don’t mind the price, for it’s a more professional motorcycle diagnostic tool)
Here are the steps that I have been following:
1. I cut all the big wire
2. I used a multimeter in order to get the relationship between the pins and wires. I used continuity function.
3. I ordered a female OBD2 ( INPA K+DCAN cable and Vagcom cable both ok) because I broke mine trying to eliminate the plastic housing
4.Then i used this configuration below:
Universal K-Line & CAN BUS Adaptor (K1600)
Signal OBDII Socket BMW 10 pin Plug
K1 15 (Ignition On) 1————————————————–10
CAN Hi 6—————————————————–7
K-Line 1 (BMS) 7—————————————–1
K-Line 2 (ABS) 8——————————————2
CAN Lo 14—————————————————–9
KL 30 (Bat+) 16—————————————————–6
How to setup bmw inpa K+Dcan cable?
1/ Dependant on the software, model & adaptor cable used it may be necessary to invert RI #
and DSR signals to for detection of battery and ignition as per the VAG KKL cable.
2/ This cable & access through the diagnostics port is yet to be tested
INPA software Installation
1/ If the cable is supplied without drivers & utilities download them from FTDI
2/ Install driver
Plug in cable, WinXP will find cable,
point to directory with drivers, windows installs.
3/ Set the USB Serial port parameters
Set the Latency timer from default 16 msec. to 1 msec
Check USB Port No matches Port No set in INPA/EDIABAS (OBD2.ini)
4/ Install Mprog & modify the programming of the eeprom FT232RL
We need to invert RI # and DSR # signals to fool the detection of battery and ignition.
After programming check your I/O Control settings, they must be :
#C0 = RXLED #C1 = TXLED #C2 = POWERON #C3 = PWRON
#C4 = SLEEP Invert RI ticked Invert DSR ticked
