Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum but have taken a lot of notes from here on fixing my E46 coupe, Thank YOU!!!:excited: I have also searched online and in here allot to programing ZCS module for LED tail light. However, the information i found wasn't to my production. As I am sitting right on the line of the switch from ZCS to VO FA.

I am hoping to find out how I would be able to perform the following without briking the module or having a dead car:hmm: There are allot of information online that I have found on programming OEM LED tail lights on E46. However, there is minimal information on coding ZCS for OEM LED tail lights.

I have an E46 330 Ci Individual M package 2000/09 production and am looking to upgrade the current tail light to OEM LED tail lights. With D-kcan cable I soldered pin 7-8 together and was able to connect to WBS or KMB to LSZ. Once the LSZ was read I open the TRC file in NCS Dummy and am able to read the file.

In there I am not able to find the option to enable the LEDH+ as I believe that year modles didn't have the LED tail light option. Through further search online I found out that I needed to code the ZCS instead since my production date was still under 2001/09 production which became FA for VO order.

through more searches I found that I can code the ZCS to enable the LED tail light options. (Link)

However, I haven't been able to figure what i have to put in for GM: SA: VA: to enable it as I have to add or remove 00000 :banghead:
I am taking that the GM: i dnt have to touch as its my VIN#

I know that my other option is to simply code the module and deactivate the light warning sign, but I rather perform this properly.

I am looking to find an light switch module out of 2004 that came with LED tail light option, but trying to save on $$$$$ and gain this experience.

Again the link that was provided does explain it. However in the pictures I dnt see any changes which has me not perform any coding.

Thanks everyone in advance for any further information on how to program the ZCS for LED tail light option._a_

Hello Guys,

First, I like to thanks everyone who created and gave us the consumers the option of working with BMW tools such as NCS Expert, Inpa etc... To gain certain options can cost $$$$ dollars and as a DIY guy I love to understand my car to its limits.

I've tried searching for the issue I am having and if this posts already exists then I would really apreciate if someone can point me toward the right direction.

As the tiles states I am trying to retrofit OEM LED tail lights for an E46 2000/09 production. While having the LED tail lights purchased, I have ordered the connecting wire from Ebay. ******>

After many searches online I finally have an understanding about Inpa and NCS Expert. I do have winkfp and NCS dummy but I haven't used winkfp much. as I am fairly new to this.

Once my D+Kcan cable once received I connected to my KMB module and read the LSZ module. With the great help of NCS Dummy I translated everything and found the options on the great forms that was create on E46Fanatics and other websites.

I am currently able to connect to inpa and read my modules and have looked at my LSZ module to see if I have the LEDH+ option so I can simply activate it.

However, due to 2000/09 production which is essentially "2001", my E46 modules work with ZCS and not FA VO!!:banghead:

I found this article online which explains but I am not understanding which numbers to take out once in ZCS module to code the LSZ module on LEDH+ tail lights. <LINK>

Thanks everyone in advance and look forward to your comments._a_

Hello Guys,

First I like to thank the great work that has been put in on NCS Expert, Inpa winkfp, ncs dummy. These great tools really help us fanatic boys :thumbsup:

I am new here and sorry if this is the wrong place to post my question. This might of been asked previously but i couldn't find any.

I have looked around and have found very beneficial information online to code ZCS for LED tail lights. <Link>

I have an E46 330CI Coupe, production 2000/09 .
VIN: WBAAA00000JU2146B

Here is when I read my ZCS
GM: 61633810P
SA: 0000284803BC14601
VN: 00026406203

Is this sample correct for my ZCS module to get coded which hopefully would enable the LED tail lights option.

In daten folder I look up the E46ZST.000 and the led info was

LEDH N0997 00000000 0000000000000000 0001000000 1 LED_HECK //Nachruestung LED-Heckleuchten E46/2 u. E46/C Facelift

So I deleted the last digit of my GM, SA, VN and would be implemented the following. I am just wondering if I have done this correctly which then I can actually apply it on to my module by coding it with NCS Expert.

GM: 61633810 + 00000000 = 61633810
SA: 0000284803BC1460 + 0000000000000000 = 0000284803BC1460
VN: 0002640620 + 0001000000 = 0003640620

Thanks in advance everyone for your help!! :bow: _sl_

For some reason i cant post when I to attach the url to a word. I'll try to post the link later in reply section.

Thanks in advance everyone!!:bow:

Can someone please verify if this method is correct?

I installed Mikes BMW tools which included all the necessary file. After that I went into BMW coding Tool and pointed default folders to ncs expert, ediabas and winkfp-nfs. Once the default folders were pointed I went and pointed the E46 V50.2 daten file to sp-source and updated the sp-daten files. once that was updated I updated the winkfp.

My 7-8 pin is connected and i can read the chasi modules on INPA. I've also connected with NCS Expert and was able to connect to EWS and KMB.

I assume the software I installed is working correctly?
