    Hey there, So about 3 months ago, I decided to downgrade (or upgrade imo) from a 2013 Mercedes B class to a 2000 E39 520i. I was absolutely in love with it, couldn't believe how great it felt for such an old car. I can't imagine what a 2022 5 series is like, likely heavily. Long story...
  3. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Okay, this is gonna be a long one, bear with me. I will try to explain the best I can without knowing much about this car in particular. So here it goes. Last night I bought a non running 99 323is with a m52b25. It cranks, but has no CEL, no power to OBD, and no spark. I tested the CPS, and it...
  4. 3 Series & 4 Series
    About a month ago my car would not turn over, the lights on the dash and air would come on but besides a click the engine would not turn over. After two weeks at the shop (not a bmw shop) the mechanic told me the EWS module was shot, it was replaced and I was given a new key. 2 weeks later the...

    I have recently taken possession of a 2003 X5 and decided to try my hand at making some keys for it. I purchased an AK90+, removed the EWS (EWS3 in my case) from my car and set about attempting to get a good dump. I had to try many many times to get a 'good dump'. My definition of a 'good dump'...

    Posting this as more of a How-To. Problem: I had an issue with my E90 initially not cranking at all: . I tried swapping batteries, checked fuses, checked various earths and checked the starter motor cables but couldn't even hear the starter motor engaging. I bit the bullet and purchased a...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So,…I bought a 2006 530xi for what I thought was a steal…but I’m struggling to figure out why it won’t start. The car cranks fine, but doesn’t have any spark. I’ve checked all of the fuses in the glove box, in the trunk area, and around the ecu, but they all seem fine. Ive also scanned with a...
  8. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    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...
  9. 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...
  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    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...

    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...
  12. 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...

    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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...

    Hi I have an E90 320D which had a water damaged ECU. I got the ECU cloned, and to no avail it didnt work. I then got the CAS unit cloned, and still didnt work. Finally i replaced the ECU, CAS and EWS and it works :D wahey BUT!! The car now starts and runs but it has several problems. The...
  19. 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...
