So a couple of weeks ago I bought and fitted a chrono pack, all good apart from mileage was about 1k over what mine has done. So with not being at work I thought I'd 'invest' in some diag/ coding software...…. a knock off INPA DIS V57 and SSS V63 package with leads off of fleabay. Not going to go into the headache I've had so far trying to actually get it to work and how SLOW it is. :sleep:
Spent a bit of time reading, youtube vids etc just to try and get accustomed to what I was playing with I thought I might try to code my chrono pack in properly. Figured out that 'the pack' is 2 pieces.... the twin dials being the retrofit chrono pack and the centre binnacle being it's controller counterpart. Kombi is said centre part and Kombi 2 is the column mounted chrono pack.
It took a bit of plugging in and unplugging of modules to find this out btw ?
So after a lot of faffing, swearing, fag smoking, head scratching and generally thinking it's all shite I've got to the point where I've coded Kombi 2 into my original centre binnacle and the finish screen is full of green tick boxes and a celebratory cookie! (those who've seen Kelly's heros will know!)
Now I'm on the home run (y) Following the on screen promts from Progman I swapped my original Kombi for the chrono Kombi and set about loading the cars data into it. It runs through all the programming fine but when it comes to the finish screen it displays a fault code (listed below) and error messages (also below) If anyone can help me with this I would be eternally grateful. Cheers. Andy.

Trouble code 8107
Error messages:
CKM values couldn't be saved
Measures plan carried out with errors

You can't save the coding with the Chrono centre display without changing the main (52pin IIRC) surface mounted chip for the one from the standard display as this saves the original VIN of the car & won't allow a save with the wrong one in.

I am assuming you are R53 btw.

Yes mate, facelift one. I thought you could change the VIN with NCS somehow?

I couldn't get it done in spite of trying autologic and other means (no names) tried by other specialists until the last one told me why.

It does however work without it being coded but many of the warning lights are wrong.

I presume the VIN mismatch blocks the coding process? :unsure: Like everything else, looks so easy on YouTube. ? Could do with my 'friendly' computer shop reopening to see if they can clone the Eprom then? I'm presuming that (as they're guesstimates anyways) if the Eprom is cloned/ swapped that the gauges will still work?

The gauges will work either way anyway.

It is the re-coding that allows the different warning light configuration to be correct.

I don't think it is an EPROM, but whether it can be replaced by one could be a different matter.

If you know of an electronic repair shop that can swap the chips that is a good start and then the new configuration can be coded for the warning lights to be correct.

Some may call me anal but all my warning lights work as they should, only reason I wanted to get them coded is so that I know all the module VIN's match, I can code it into the car and a slim possibility it may re-align my mileage.

OK, mine was different then.

The gauges worked, the mileage was correct after start up, some warning lights worked but (for instance) the right indicator was something else, the cruise became the high temperature warning etc.

ETA.
Can you get the pert number etc off yours and I will compare to mine as if I have a pre FL one that could be the difference & if I coud get the warning lights right I would happily swap.

Part No on my centre chrono is 6953548 manufactured on 04/11/04. Original cluster is 6978318 manufactured on 30/05/06. Going off the chrono chassis No they came from a cab with I assume PDC (this MAY explain both my trouble codes?) during the coding process. ??? Might have to switch the warning buzzer option off in the chrono pack using NCS after I get the VIN swapped?
