You can find these values in the manual or the website of your interface.


Next, you need to select the protocol that matches your vehicle. There are two main protocols for BMW vehicles: K-line and CAN. K-line is an older protocol that uses a single wire for communication, while CAN is a newer protocol that uses two wires for communication. You can find out which protocol your vehicle uses by checking the OBD port. If it has 7 pins, it uses K-line; if it has 16 pins, it uses CAN.


If your vehicle uses K-line, you need to select the KWP2000 protocol in the software. If your vehicle uses CAN, you need to select the ISO15765 protocol in the software. You also need to select the correct CAN ID for your vehicle, which is a hexadecimal number that identifies your vehicle model and module. You can find a list of CAN IDs online, such as or .
