you mean the "car alarm"Does anyone's horn beep when you lock the car because i would like mine to do that.
Kind of good to see the Dynavin come along to tap into it, 12 years into the design life. :thumbup:
^^1. When the temperature drops below 37 F degrees, the car beeps to let you know to watch out for icy roads. Also, the rear defroster comes on.
13. If you hit the 'counter reset button' with the ignition in position 2 (or very quickly when you start your car), then it will show you when you are due to change your brake fluid!
14. There is also a first aid kit under the passengers seat.
Mine only beeps. I think its a dealer setting to change between beep and siren.
yeah Terrarphantm who programmed my car said that the facelift BMW E46s after 3/2003 beeps like a computerized beeping whiles the prefacelift cars chirp.
The I-bus is the data bus that the components in the car use to communicate. It is used by the radio, nav, phone, ihka, steering wheel buttons, etc.What is iBus? I hear that term get thrown around alot. Never really understood the relation to the BMW E46.
Is this why whenever I take apart the steering wheel the steering wheel buttons seem to all run on like 2 wires going into the car?To clarify on my last post here is an example of data that is on the ibus.
The insterment cluster sends current speed to the radio on the ibus.
the steering wheel buttons also send their data to the radio as well.
When you unlock the car, the GM5 sends a command to the LCM to turn on the dome lights.
The iBus can accept info from various sources like sensors, steering wheel buttons, radio, cluster, cruise, displays, OBC, etc by treating all these like clients on ring type network. Each is connected to those 2 wires with the iBus handling the network traffic.Is this why whenever I take apart the steering wheel the steering wheel buttons seem to all run on like 2 wires going into the car?
I mean all 6 buttons for music/bluetooth and 4 for the Cruise control all seem to run into the car via like 2 wires.
