    Default EFiLive and the '07 BCM

    Hi... I ran into an interesting problem.
    When I got my E38 ECU ,T42 TCM and the BCM together on a bench harness I realized that I was not able to see the BCM on the CAN bus. Are there any tricks to read and modify a BCM with EFI live?

    EFILive will not communicate with the BCM controller, only the ECM and TCM.

    The EFILive V7 scantool can already clear codes on all modules on the bus...

    go Edit->Properties->Advanced and checkmark Check/Clear DTCs for All Modules, click Ok;

    then go Info->Clear DTC's for All Listed Modules.

    EFILive can still broadcast the clear DTCs message over the bus to all modules (so I understand), but it cannot do anything else to them.

    Also note: on 1998-2002 F-car the BCM is not on the serial bus.
