Hello JP,
First time user of Insta/P.
I replaced ABS module with used one. I want to code the module with Insta but Ive never use it before.
What do I need to start and whats the procedure?
BMW Mechanic: JayPutelis, Shop Foreman/ BMW Master Tech replied 3 years ago
You need to start by connecting the vehicle to your computer with the icon (diagnostic head) via land cable. Once its connected you can start the ista/p application. Let me know when you are this far. You'll also need a battery charger supplying consistent voltage for programming.
