    A little bit over a year ago, I started engine swapping my manual 1997 318i. I picked up an automatic 1998 328i, and swapped my 5spd trans onto it and put in in the chassis. I also purchased a K+DCAN Cable from eBay to plug into the 20pin under the hood for ews rolling code alignment. I now have...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I just picked up a 2004 325ci with a blown head gasket, other than that, it's a beautiful car and I plan to keep it. I also have a 2001 330i which is not much more than a parts car but it has a strong motor, good compression, low miles, an ideal motor for a swap. Oh, and both are automatics. I'm...

    Hello I been having this issue for a while where the car kept dying from a parasitic draw when i lock the doors but its fine when i leave it unlocked. One day when the battery died it stopped turning over and will not even recognize the key as it doesnt give "key in ignition" warning when I open...
  4. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hi all, Hope you guys can give some advice. I was making some new keys for my e46, and was experimenting with a spare EWS as I thought it was saver. Stupidly I used my original key with the spare EWS which I believe made it increase the rolling code in the key, thus not working anymore with...
  5. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2007 650i that won't run. The trouble started when I was getting a transmission fault error: Then, the car would shut off while driving and I'd have a hard time starting it. Each time it happened, it would get worse. Now, the starter turns, but the engine won't start at all. The...

    Hey fella's, My name is Dylan ,this is my first post. I have 2000 528i with a blown head gasket. I Removed the head and its warped. So I decided to drop a new motor in it. Took me a while but I finally found another m52tu with low miles. My question is about the EWS. When I...
  7. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey everybody, I've got a startup issue here that I was hoping someone might know more about than what I could find using google. So last night I drove to the grocery store to get some delicious ice cream. I pay, leave, and sit down to start my car. Turn the key, all my lights come on, but no...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Problem started when trying to fix a no crank no start issue on my '04 x3 3.0. Still suffering from issue, but assuming it was the battery which was reading at 12.2 volts, I went and changed, checked new battery before install (read fine at 12.6 volts), but oddly jumped to 13.8 volts when key...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I posted this on another old E46 thread which talked about the same thing but it had not been addressed since 2010 so I thought I would post a fresh string for some help. I have a 1999 328i that will not turn over the starter even though everything else runs fine. Here is what I have done...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2002 325ci and I dropped my keys and the remote broke open. I put it back together but didn't realize the chip had fell out. So now I have a car that won't start due to the missing chip. To make things worse. I had just bought the car off a guy on Craigslist and lost all the...

  12. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    hello. We have a problem with a project car standing in our garage. The car is a 1995 e34 518i, and we have changed the engine to a 1992 M50b25 non vanos. The mechanical part went great, but it comes to fire it up, we have a problem. The starter cranks the engine, but we are not getting any...

    I have been looking for the yellow starter relay for over a week. I have checked under the dash and hood nowhere to be found. Car won't start but the lights come on. Key goes all the way through but no crank.
  14. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    So I've had my X5 e53 3.0d auto a while now and it's been running fine, but today I was driving for a bit and pulled into my friends garage and shut it down, re started it 5 minutes later and there was nothing so went through the motions, battery, lock unlock, fuses everything and still nothing...

    Hey guys first post here. I have been working on getting my brothers 1995 BMW 525I started it has a brand new starter and still no start.

    I have a broken ignition shaft... I have already removed the ignition lock cylinder (it's shot too) and the ignition solenoid (solenoid is good). I was able to get the broken piece of the shaft out (on the lock cylinder side). Is there a way to get the rest of the shaft out??? 1995 525i...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    The engine on my 2008 550i cranked normally, but would not start. I had it towed to the dealership. This is what they found: The invoice says: "Interrogated fault memory, found fault 2F44 EWS preventing manipulation stored and present. Performed test plan, found fault due to DME software...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My 08 550i has a four year old battery. There are no messages in the iDrive. When I press start the engine sounds like it's cranking normally. But, it does not start. I am not completely convinced about the battery being the sole problem. I temporarily hooked up the battery from my Honda Pilot...
  19. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Bought this off a friend as a "Hoopty" to get me by when school starts up again in the fall. The previous owner had messed with the car quite a bit. Wrong tires so the car sits low, rewired the ignition switch and installed a bad push start button, there was an oil leak. etc. I replaced the...
