Self canceling turn signals..So how DO they work?
« on: March 19, 2017, 06:31:33 PM »
There is this long enduring, often tongue-in-cheek thread on I-BMW.com, entitled: Self canceling turn signals..So how DO they work?
Finally somebody has actually found out how they work!  Apparently there are settings that can be made by the BMW service guy, which allow the distance and the time values (after the first flash) at which your turn signals are cancelled.  Here is the link to the critical post in that thread: http://www.i-bmw.com/showthread.php?p=763856&posted=1#post763856.  According to this post, your BMW service guy can change the time from first flash to cancel to 10, 15, or 20 seconds, and the distance to 210, 350, or 500 meters.

My first thought was, "Hey, if this is a setting, when will we be able to change it with our GS-911s?"  Maybe the Hex Code guys know about this and will get to it "some day," or maybe they don't know that this capability even exists.

Just thought I'd pass along this bit of intel.

Yes, we are aware of this. :) We have recently aquired technical information about coding options like this one for the ZFE central vehicle electronics / body controller, and we do plan to support it in future once we have tested an implementation.

If you have an older S1000RR (pre 2015 model), this coding option has been supported by the GS-911 for a long time already. See: http://www.hexcode.co.za/products/gs-911/kombi46

Unfortunately, we are still trying to gather the related information for the newer K001 chassis bike models, so coding functions for newer bike models are still a bit futher away in the future.

Thank you very much for getting back!  I almost always cancel my turn signals manually, but I just thought I'd bring this interesting bit of information to your attention.  Good to know that you were already aware. 

The thing I would really like to be able to do is change my clock on my 2016 S1000XR to 24-hr display.  I had used my GS-911 to get my 2010 R1200GS Adv and my 2013 K1300S set up this way, but they've both been replaced by the XR. 

Thank you

The XR is one of the newer K001 bikes for which we are still trying to get the relevant technical information. This is a very popular request, so we definitely want to add those configuration options.

I have a 2007 R1200RT.
Is it possible to adjust it on my bike?
If it's possible, where is the option in the software?

The cancelling function was done within the Indicator relay on old models and was not adjustable via diagnostics

Thanks for the info.
No luck for me I guess.

I'm very glad to hear the turn signal parameter will be added! Thank you!

Any updates on the ability to change the default settings for the self cancel turn signals on the newer bikes? ('17 R1200GS et al)

So if  understand this thread correctly, If I have an older (pre-2015) K1600  I can change my turn signal count down with the GS-911????.  if so, how do i do it?

The turn signal configuration is only available on the S1000 range pre-2015:

Hi Hex Code Guys,

Just wondering if this is still on the roadmap. This is one of the few annoyances of my RT (there really aren't many), but if I can adjust that with the GS-911, wouldn't that be special!

It's OK if the functionality isn't there yet, but I'd just like to know that the effort to add it is still alive.

Thanks in advance!
