Default BM Technic cable and E92?

Hey folks,

I have a BM Technic cable and software which worked fine with my old E46, I've not had any need to use it on my E92 for the last 4 years so have never tried.

Its now looking like my bloody throttle actutors have a problem and so I figured I'd use the old cable. However no matter what I do it won't read anything from the car? It just says that no response from the control unit? Am I missing something?

Cheers!

You need a D-can cable for the E92, so the cable you have is no good as it will be a kkl type.

Thanks for the quickly reply. I thought it was a both K and D-Can I have to admit, it was a 2003 E46, although the invoice says KCAN02 on it. Is there any difference in the actual socket to tell them apart?

Ok I thought all there cables were KKL, but if it says can, then maybe it's just a com port issue.

No way to tell just by looking at it, unless it has a switch on it and says K+Dcan which afaik there cables don't.
