Getting Started

Upon successful installation of the software, you are ready to connect the cables and start the program. The following sections provide detailed instructions for this procedure.

Connecting the Cables

Depending upon the kit you ordered, you will have one, two, or three cables. With the car’s ignition off and before launching the software, connect the cables between your computer and car as follows.

  • Connect the standard interface cable’s USB connector to the USB port on your computer.
  • Connect the OBDII-end of the standard interface cable to the diagnostic port on your car.
  • If you purchased the 50’ extension cable, you can connect it between the male ODBII-end of the standard interface cable and the car.
  • If you are working on early-model cars and have the early-model adapter cable, connect it between the standard interface cable and car or between the 50’ extension cable and the car.

After you connect the cables, turn the ignition to the ‘on’ position and start the Bavarian Technic program.

Launching the Program

You should start the software program after you connect the cables. To start the program:

  1. Click the Windows Start button.
  2. Select All Programs | Bavarian Technic | Bavarian Technic (BMW).

Upon starting the program, you will see the Launching Application screen followed by a series of start-up dialogs including the Customer/Vehicle Information and Choose Vehicle screens.
