How to set up BMW F/I/G Series Programming in it?
Problem: I had an error when programming BMW F32 in ISTA-P 4.19.13 Expert Mode.
Error: Vehicle programming with ISTA-P is no longer approved for the connected vehicle.
Vehicle management is now only possible with ISTA 4.
The version before ISTA 4 was called ISTA-D(aka Rheingold). It would cover diagnosis on all cars. The version beginning from version 4 is called ISTA+.
The error indicates that BMW F/I/G series programming is unavailable in ISTA-P(since V4.19XX), but in ISTA+ instead. Starting from version 4, besides diagnosis also covers the programming of the F series, and ISTA-P is left for programming of the E series only(therefore ISTA-P can not program the F series anymore.)
Here are the tips for programming setup in ISTA+(Rheingold or ISTA-D).
- Run ISTA+ software, identify the vehicle
- Then choose Service Plan
- Choose Programming Plan
- Then Execute the measures plan
- Follow ISTA prompts to carry out programming
