Hi everyone I have a 2016 f10 I had to replace the Zgw with a used one I tried to back it up from the Cas but it didn’t work properly. My vo is missing my transfer case. Can anyone help me make a vo for my car. Thank you.
So I was trying to make a key with autohex on the bench and it corrupted the Zgw. I was stupid and didn’t save vo before hand.
If not works let us know and we will help you remotly...
Hi do I need to download any special way. I keep getting error c430 when trying to convert file
also i down loaded the fa from the car and it looks almost the same.


It looks like the vo is exactly the same just asking your opinion.
I see that i used wrong month in timecriteria and i edited it now, but shouldn't be problem anyways.
Can you post exact error screenshot, you are using e-sys?
I will when I get home later. Thank you again for the help.
So I’m going to send you a copy of my vo I got my old Zgw to work I’m an idiot and bent a pin unbent it and it back to normal now. Thank you for all the help but I will up date you with the picture you asked for.
So I have a stupid question I got a Zgw from a 2016 528 my car is a 2016 528xi I know it shouldn’t make a difference. I reinstalled the old Zgw recover the Fa back to the Cas. Then reinstalled the new(used ) Zgw and tried to back up the Fa to the new Zgw but still had the same issue. I am I doing something wrong.

Have you done simple coding to donor module with loaded original vo/fa? Also ZGW VIN can be changed in tool32 using steuern_vin_schreiben

Ok thank you I will try that and see what happens.
I was told if I read the vin from the Cas that it would be written to the Zgw when I did a backup is that not true. That might be were I messed up.
