I have a 2002 e46 that has been in a crash. I am trying to decode the crash data buffer but can find no decode information. Does anyone know how this is done?

Thanks

Requires very expensive and specific software and much if the data is only decoded by the manufacturer.

Post a dump of the crash and any values for variables that you know (or think you do). Could be a fun brain teaser.

I have friends that subcontract gathering data with the Bosch tool, it is good, but not complete data. Much of the information is not been made available to the general public or aftermarket by the manufacturers.

Even with a manufacturer tool, many of the guys in the field gather the data cannot read/review everything. The file is gathered then shipped to the manufacturer for decoding and review as needed.

You might be surprised what data is actually available if you could read it all!
