Question No crank seems to be EWS issue

Happy New Year to all. Have a 2000 Z3 with 6 cylinder and manual transmission. It has been running fine until one day when I drove it to work and was unable restart it again when it was time to go home. Had to have it towed back to the house so I could test a few things. Tried locking/unlocking, arming and disarming the alarm, tried multiple keys but nothing works. I can hear something running (fuel pump?) when the key is turned on but no cranking takes place. My diagnostic reader (Peak) indicates codes d0 (EWS Engine Speed) and 80 (EWS signal) from table 15. Only other clue that I remember was the DSC light coming on during my initial ride into work, it had not done this before. Clock, lights, and other electrical accessories seem to power on just fine. Original radio has been locked down for over a year, cannot seem to come up with a code that will work.
