‘Cloning’ with BMW FEM or BDC is a bad word. We would rather say BMW FEM/BDC replacement. What tool can change bmw fem module and will it work as expected?
Autohex II will be the best option to perform FEM/BDC module replacement.
Cloning the full data from one FEM/BDC to another is possible in Autohex II software.
For doing this you need to unlock both original and donor FEM/BDC All the data stored in control like keys, ISN, VIN etc. will be transferred from the original to the donor. This option helps to replace FEM/BDC in the easiest way when the original FEM/BDC is damaged.
