So against my mechanics wishes I bought the part. My mechanic installed it and low and behold it doesnt work. Does anyone out the have any expierience with DME and ECM? Thank you!
ECM Engine control module needs to be reprogrammed and coded for your car ! New ECM needs to know the new signal from the key for instance. For this procedure you need to use the BMW software. This is applicableto the second hand ECM too.
