Do you know where a download of the INPA version WITH those tools can be had?Thanks in advance.
I had a really hard time finding an older version of the software with the special tests menu so I ordered from an ebay seller. PM'd you the link. $55 shipped. Worked beautifully and you get two working versions of DIS, NCS Expert and WinKFP.

Only issue I had was that the seller is out of Germany and my order got hung up in customs for some reason and took over 30 days to get here but that isn't the sellers fault.

EDIT: You won't need to bleed if you are just replacing the GPS (you won't be opening the hydraulic system) but running the adaptation procedures would be good.

Yes, got it with the need (or not) to bleed but have had a bottle of Burkhardt hydraulic fluid for some time and would like to use it now that I now know of a stateside source for a 2nd bottle of it.

Would you provide the name and/or Ebay link for the seller? How were you able to translate or was information in English. Did the seller provide the communication cable also or did you purchase it separately?

Thank you.

Default Re: SMG troubleshooting FAQ

cog light came on for my smg m3.my reverse would go forward & would start off as 2nd gear not 1st. When driving itíll skip 3rd & 4th then go to 5th. Afterwards would die out. I only had a generic scanner & the codes were P1717 & P1852. Ive also recently changed the gear position sensor but the cog light didnít turn off. Still waiting to take it to get smg adaptation. Before I do Iím tryna find out what else can be the problem. Anyone willing to lmk. Thanks in advance
