Simultaneously press the 1000 and the 1 button to get remaining fuel in liters (the car needs to be running).
Simultaneously press the 1000 and the 10 button to get the version number. You should get something like: 4 .6TYP
Where the 4 is the car/engine designator, the 6 is the chip firmware. That tells you the programming of the OBC, what coding plug is in it. Specific to each engine type, injector type, tire size, fuel tank and reserve capacity.
OBC car/engine designators and firmware number. E30 318i 3-3 TYP
E30___325i______('88 on)____4-6 TYP
E24___635Csi_____('88 on)___6-6 TYP
As of right now I'm trying to decipher and decode the proms in the OBC and speedo so maybe one day people can order new coding plugs with their specs so everything works correctly. But for now it's on the back burner, currently I don't see any demand.... But it would be cool...
