    I attepted to install INPA for windows xp and I followed the provided video by the letter. I came accross the issue when I needed to do a server registration with the command prompt for the file mscomctl.ocx file. When I attempted the command "regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx", I was met with an error...

    I have a cable that I bought on Amazon that lets me use INPA and NCS expert, but when I tried to use PA soft it wouldn't work. Is this a driver issue or do I need a different cable specifically for PA soft? Here's the link to the cable I bought...

    First post here because usually any issue I've ever had with my e46 330i has been identified and resolved using past comments! Anyways, I recently bought a e46 M3 (May 1, 2003) because my 330i (October 2001) has been so good to me. After running Ista+ 4.07 on it, I found a bevy of weird "No...

    Hello, I've been having strange behavior from my AC lately. Hot air only from floor and defrost vents no matter what I manually set the AC and dash thumb wheel to. I've been reading about that a lot and I wanted to try to scan the IHKA system for errors and get some readings before I tried...

    Now tools like OBD Fusion and PA Soft might all be part of your arsenal for an e46 but there are times when neither of these will do the job. Good examples are Brake Module replacements, or Steering Angle Sensor calibrations. This is why every e46 owner needs a working copy of dealer level...

    What kind of Diagnostic software and tools can I use (or download) so that I can read the trouble codes, reset the errors and do some programming of features? What is INPA software and how do I get it? What OBD tool do you recommend? Thank you for any tips, I am a newbie.

    I've been spending the past few days getting INPA and other programs installed on my laptop. I soldered the 7 and 8 connectors on my cable and finally I was able to read my steering angle sensor status. I was following directions to re-calibrate it but when I hit shift+f4 to display compensation...

    Hi everyone. This forum helped me on multiple occasions to fix my 325i :bow: However this time I can't find any relevant info. My car (2005 325i) occasionally goes into the "limp mode". I would be driving (random speeds, sometimes happens at 60 mph, sometimes at 5 mph) and the transmission...

    I am trying to get my laptop setup for coding and hooked it up for the first time today. I am obviously missing something because I loaded INPA and the only options were "Info", "Script" and "End", when I clicked on "Script" I got " Couldn't find INPA configuration...
