Default How to Use BMW INPA K+DCAN USB Interface With FT232RL Chip

Interface USB OBD2 for BMW - INPA/Ediabas - K+DCAN allows full diagnostic of BMW from 1998 to 2008 (all functions as in OMNITEC interface). Build in 2 lines K and D-Can magisterial and here shared a user guide on how to install [Only for registered users... ],maybe it will do little help for INPA users for BMW Diagnose.

1. Place the disc in your computer and view the contents of the disc. Click on the "Setup" file. Click Next, Next and Install to proceed with the installation.

2. Allow several minutes for the installation to complete. Towards the end of the installation, the FTDI drivers will automatically install. Windows may prompt you for permission to proceed. Click Yes. The Device Driver Installation Wizard will pop up. Click Next and accept the license agreement to complete the installation of the FTDI Drivers. Now back to the software installation wizard box, click Finish.

3. The only thing needed to do is to configure your BMW K-CAN D-CAN USB Cable. During the installation, the drivers for the cable were installed. Now plug it in your USB port and Windows should recognize it and begin installing it.

If Windows did not recognize the cable or could not find the correct drivers, see the Troubleshooting section below.

4. Now we need to make sure the cable is using the right port number on your PC

1.)Go to the "Control Panel" (Start > Control Panel)
2.)Click on "System" (If System isn't shown, see the top right of the control panel and change the view to Large Icons)
3.)Click "Device Manager" in System
4.)Expand the Ports (COM & LPT) in device manager and look for "USB Serial Port (COM X)"
5.)X = the default COM port Windows assigned for the cable. We will need to change this to COM 1 in order for it to function properly.
6.) Right click on "USB Serial Port (COM X)" and click on "Properties". Go to the "Port Settings" tab, then click "Advanced..."
7.)Change the "COM Port Number" to COM1
8.) Change the "Latency Timer (msec)" to 1
9.) Now click OK. If you get a warning that COM1 is being used by another device, click YES and continue to exit out of both windows

5. Test if the Port has been configured correctly. Unplug the USB cable and plug it back into the same port. Navigate to the Device Manager, Ports (COM & LPT) and you should see "USB Serial Port (COM1). This means you have successfully installed the Drivers and configured the port.

6. Connecting the BMW K-CAN D-CAN Cable to your vehicle: Plug the interface into your car's OBDII port and turn on the ignition. Now start the INPA software from your Desktop shortcut.

If the INPA software detects your vehicle successfully, you will see 2 SOLID Black dots next to "Battery" and "Ignition" headings. After using INPA to test the connection from your car and interface, you can proceed to using the other BMW tools in this package.
