  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    My car has a lot of trouble when it is starting and the engine is cold, it starts and dies 4-5 times before finally letting me give it gas and help it, then has really rough idle. I downloaded INPA through Mikes Easy BMW tools and got it connected to the car just fine, but it seems as soon as I...

    Hi ALL, I am back with more electronic issues! Worked through a bunch of problems and ended up here: Steering angle sensor failure, no AWD. I cleaned my original sensor, did not change a thing. ( I still have that set of parts) I replaced the steering angle sensor (I bought the whole set of...

    Not sure how I did it before but there is a way to unlock the steering wheel so I can adjust it and ensure it is straight when my wheels are straight.... New laptop so I had to reload all my tools (INPA, ISTA/P, etc) When I go into INPA I see E60->Satellite Steering Column->Status->Steering...

    Maybe once a year, rarely twice, my HVAC output will stop working. Everything is powered. Button lights change when selection is picked, but it will change output. I started the car and had outside air blowing at medium speed. Can’t change fan speed, but the indicator lights will go up or down...

    Hello everyone! I have used this wonderful website to solve some minor issues, but I couldn't find the problem which I'm facing at the moment. Yesterday, I was seeking for a place in the fuse box (area), where I could connect 12v+ for the seat heaters in my BMW e61 523i 2006 - photo in the...

    I’m trying to reprogram a e71 cas set to my 2012 e70, water got in my original dme. My vin is in the new modules now. But I need to code my injectors but the s63 is not popping up under engine options. I have it under f10 tab as well as GXX but not the e70. Is there a way to import and auto...

    1998 740i Is there a comprehensive fault code data base? I have some codes pulled with INPA. Translated those 20 letter long German words into English. Googled each one. Some answers were found. Some seem like I’m the only person to have pulled them. Fault codes I could define ZKE Module...

    The title sums it up. If I have both ISTA+ 4.31.40 and INPA, is there any reason to purchase TIS? I’m referring to TIS you can get off EBay, not the $2,500/yr subscription. I’m a hobbyist not a professional mechanic. Have a E39 and E38 Thanks
  9. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    The ECU temperature sensor, is that normally open or normally closed with regards to its resistance? I believe my temp sensor is bad. Reads 0.0 Ohms so it is closed. Regardless if it’s in near boiling water or sitting on a block of ice it’s reads closed. The reason I think the ECU temperature...

    Wow did I just troubleshoot a puzzle. ECU box temp sensor was bad so DME wouldn’t power up along with ignition lock contacts having heavy carbon, so before the temp sensor failed I was getting intermittent no start, no crank. On to the next issue… when I drive the car the DSC light comes on...

    Hi! yesterday i bought a k+dcan cable for inpa to use it on my e39, the one without the switch. I soldered the pins 7&8 together to communicate with all the modules because it s an older model. Everything worked right, I coded one option on the lcm and the next day when i wanted to code again...

    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...

I've downloaded ISTA+ and followed the installation guide as instructed here: All BMWs - Ista+ download link - no request. But ISTA+ could never connect to my E90 (built in 2010). It always brings...
