I have seen on here in a few places that the country code should not be changed in the APIM as it can cause issues.
I saw a configuration called ‘Nav in Motion’. Upon checking, it seems that all this does is change the country code to a country that does not have laws on using mobile devices whilst on the move.
I just wondered what the issues are when changing the country code. The reason I ask is because I thought I would give it a try so changed the setting to 5753. After the change, everything seemed to be fine and it looked like nothing changed.
Next morning, I got in the car, got to the end of the road and the engine light came on. Plus I noticed whenever I clicked the ‘Stations’ button on the screen for FM, it said the list was empty. When I got home, I plugged in my laptop and there were loads of DTCs on things like APIM, ABS, PCM. All various errors.
I have changed the country code back and reset all the DTCs and will see what it is like tomorrow.
Would this kind of behaviour be expected just from changing the country code in the APIM or does it look like there is something else?
Nothing changed other than the country code before that happened.
