Note:

Many ecu programmer save eeprom data as “BIN” format, but CKM100 save as “YHF” format.
Step 2: Write key by VVDI2/TM100
Here we use VVDI2 to write a new key.

Connect VVDI 2 key programmer with computer. Select BMW>CAS4+ (5m48h)
Select “File make key”-> CAS4+-> 5M48H
Upload CPU(5M48H) eeprom data just saved.
VVDI2 will display vehicle information, VIN, KM, remote frequency etc.

Step 1: Read CAS eeprom data as Part I Step 1.
Step 2: Read ECU data

Disassemble 535i Engine computer, see ECU position in picture below:

30 seconds, new key has been programmed.

 

In conclusion:

Add new key and all keys lost similarity:

Need to read ISN code+CAS eeprom data

Difference:

Add key: have ignition/original key, get ISN code to generate new key
All keys lost: need to read ECU data, get ISN code to program new key
