Default e70 CAS Module Flash Failed

All;

Newbie...

I was in the process of using ISTA/P to program and code
a CAS Control Unit (in car and various other control units).
The flash failed due to voltage issues.
Given it was the CAS unit, when I place the key in the ignition,
nothing happens. I am unable to get the ISTA/P via CARDAQ
to respond and attempt a reprogram.

Besides replacing the CAS module with a new one and
coding it, do I have any others options?

Can the CAS Module be bench flashed?

Has anyone done this?

What software should be used?

What power supply should I use?

Given the ISTA/P directory structure, what is the name
and/or file extension of the file to be flashed?

Any help is appreciated...


Mike

Congrats,you have successfully killed the car.
Joke aside,i know some guys have accessed the central gateway thru the optical connection and started reprogramming from there.I am sure that the dealerships have that happening on a regular basis,so a knowledgable tech may give a good advice.
Good luck revivng it and a feedback is always welcome.

For programming BMW you should have a constant power supply set to 14.4v. a normal battery charger isn't ideal because the voltage fluctuates. This can cause major problems with modules. Look for something like the Schumacher INC-700A Industrial Charger with Flash Programming. (not Cheap)

use winkfp with d-can cable or similar and try to update. Remove the key from ignition lock.

Default Cas fail i com

I have had the same issue.
Bought a new CAS and read the data off the processor and flashed it to the old failed CAS. Ignition on and CAS Alignement to DME and all OK
Retried on another MINI and same again failed to program CAS with I COM.
Has anyone else had these problems as i wouldnt program with I COM again its not good enough which is sad as its great for diagnostics.

Did you ever gey this resolved? If so, how? I have done the same thi.g to my DME, now no commumication with INPA, NCS, Progman, and tried NFS emergency flash, nothing worked.

When I try to "replace" my DME in Progman, it asks for the EKG part number, I have tried hardware # from winkfp, part # from OEM, and any other 7 digit number. It processes for a mimute, then goes back to the screen asking for part #. That is my last hope.

I am currently looking for someplace to repair it. If anyone has any idea what else I can try, or a good place to send it, pleasd let me know.

The DME seems to be in limbo, winkfp is showing it to have the s
ZUSB it had before the failed flash, and INPA is showing the "new" ZUSB it alledgedly flashed to.

BTW, car has not started since the flash, even with a brand new battery.

Anyone please help, any ideas at all.
