M235i active sound

Post by Ry_B » Sun Sep 23, 2018 9:27 pm

Hi

Been out in a friends m135 (same year 2014) and mine seems much quieter from inside (neither have the m performance exhaust and both completely standard)

(Owned my car a month or so, not sure what’s previously been coded)

I plugged Carly in and there was a fault code with the active sound (sorry didn’t keep a note which one and I’ve cleared it now but I think it said something about m5 sound not installed properly??) and not sure how long it had been there for

I’ve tried to recode it to m4 just to test if it was working and it sounds no different, so I’m sure the active sound isn’t working in my car. The fault code has not returned but it sounds no different. Is this a common fault? Best way of fixing it?

Thanks

Mine sounds exactly like this which has been disabled so I’m sure there is a fault with it somewhere?

Edit - now I’ve set it to an m4 sound just to test it and it sounds no different at all, so I know it’s not working

First point of call to fix this? I knew my car sounded too quiet!

What volume is it set to, 03? 00? 05?

It should sound the best set to N55 imo, the M4 file will be fighting/overlapping the real exhaust frequencies.

Has someone physically bypassed the ASD module with one of those American harnesses? Worth checking in the boot.

Hi

The only option for me to add is:

M3/m4
M5/m6
Rolls Royce

No option for the m235i coding...

Is this something I’ll need esys for rather than Carly?

sounds mad, but I'd try OFF (in the hope that means standard) and 'rather loud'.

The S55 file is known to be very quiet. Weird that you don't have the N55, B58, N47, N20, etc, options too?

I’ve tried a few things now, off and various sound volumes with no luck

I’m thinking I need the proper coding software and a cable and laptop rather than Carly to sort this. Anyone local to Birmingham please? Happy to pay for your time

I have Carly and no matter which sound selection or volume setting I choose, I can’t hear anything coming from the speakers on my m240i...makes no difference whatsoever
