Very nice explanation!
Since your knowledge is such vast with these modules, please explain this for me:
My friends '03 E39 has intermittent non starting situation. The key turns, but nothing happens. OEM key btw. After we did the procedure described by you in the E39 section, it start right away. The funny thing is that this happen couple times during 3 months maybe. Every time he "re-programed" the key the car start right away.
3 years ago on my E46, I had to order a key since I bought the car without ( in auction). After receiving the key from the dealership, went in "programmed" the key like described above and it start right away. For sure there was no programing done through software.
I'm curious how was that possible if the procedure described here does not comunicate with the EWS? I am convinced that the procedure communicates with the EWS module since I've done it on E38, E39 and E46, and it worked. Or maybe, I misunderstand the lines up here...
I am all ears...
