This bulletin applies to 2009 BMW 128i models produced from June 2006 to 2009. After replacing the CAS (car access system), the vehicle has a no-crank condition. The likely cause: The CAS “Line Mode” is still active.
Use ISTA to delete the “Line Mode.” Select “Activities/Service function/Drive/CAS/Reset starter interlock” and then run the test plan S6100_KL50MONT.
Note that for certain vehicles up to March 2007, the test plan may not be available. Identify the vehicle manually by selecting “Basic features” and select a production date after March 2007. For example, input a 6/2007 production date. The test plan will then be available.
