BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be happy to help you with this question.
Unfortunately the KGM or body gateway module cannot be programmed beyond what it already is coded to control. When this unit is replaced it needs to be programmed and coded to the vehicle. Each BMW depending on its options will have a vehicle order. This vehicle order is what the options the vehicle has at the time of delivery. This is used to "tell" the KGM what options it has during coding so the inputs and outputs are correct. The vehicle order can be changed while doing a retrofit through programming or by BMW by supplying the dealer with a new VO (vehicle order) that comes in a specific format that must be loaded with the BMW programming station.
I have a description for you of what the KGM does in your vehicle:
The KGM is actually multiple modules in one. The only way for you to use outputs of the KGM would be to monitor the wiring to see if the input or output you are looking for is there for the function you want. Then you could splice into the wiring to achieve the input or output you are looking for. But existing inputs and outputs would be needed.
