    First of all, I thank you very much for this forum which has been very helpful so far. Now I have another problem, I get an error like the following screenshot is it because my ASC module is error? one of my friends has informed the possibility that this problem could be in the throttle...

Has anyone experienced this and what should I check. someone told me it might be a problem with...

    Jump to the most recent post. Car cranks now, but misfires a lot. Hi guys, my 2002 330i 137k, cranks but won't start. Here's a list of events that have transpired so far: -Brought my running car to my dad's place to replace the CCV, since I thought it was leaking oil. I had already changed the...

    Hello, I have a BMW 320i with the M54B22 engine with a manual transmission and it is my first ever project car. It has been running perfect ever since I got it and started every time without any issues. Until recently and now it won't start at all. I'll write my issue as detailed as possible and...

    When a DME is re-flashed, what happens to the ISN code in the DME being flashed? Is a new one flashed in its place? The issue at hand is that beginning with EWS III (apparently used 1st in Z series, then carried forward to E46) A new DME must be flashed to an ICS code. Then when the DME 1st...

    Hey guys. I recently swapped a b30 into my 325 (everything necessary has been swapped) and put on a ‘performance’ b30 tune and I’m having issues getting it to run smoothly. The flash was supposed to replace the b25 values with some for the b30 and take care of my sap and rear o2 delete. When I...

    What? I have written guides (see links below) to show you how to update the software in your DME (engine control module) or EGS (automatic transmission control module) to the latest BMW factory version for free using WinKFP. Why? I recommend every car be updated to the latest. There are three...

    Hello! I have recently come up on a 2005 325Ci with an M56 SULEV , unfortunately, it is not in driving condition (input shaft seal and bushing broke, getting it fixed, slow transmission shop, blah blah blah...). Anyways, on the more exciting hand, I am looking at the road ahead. In this case...

    I have a 2003 318i with a N42B20 141hp. I need to replace my DME. I verified the DME was causing my trouble, not wanting to read the crankshaft sensor. I tried a new DME, but upon further research I found out it needs to be programmed. Now my question. How? The VIN, ISN (Rolling Code), and...

    Hello Fanatics, I have recently purchased a 2005 325 ci SULEV with out keys and thought I could make it work by just switching out the DME/EWS with new key but fell short because of not knowing the difference between an m54 and m56 engine. Long story short purchased a 325i DME MS45.1 (PL06671)...

    Solution: fix poor fuel pump relay connection I know this problem has been covered time and time again, but I'm to the point where either I have to delete EWS entirely (not what I want to do) or replacing all the components related and wasting money. ANY info or advice is greatly appreciated...

    Noob here Recently brought my first project car an 03 325i Manual. Noticed when putting the car in reverse the car instantly shuts off. After two attempts of putting it in reverse the car will crank but not start. The previous owner mentioned that the DME, EWS, and key ignition was swapped. It...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2000/2001 325i auto, UK spec. A couple of weeks ago I started suffering intermittent "no crank" issues, and diagnoses pointed to the EWS. I'll try to keep this post brief, but please let me know if I should provide more information. I would really appreciate your advice...

    Ok, so my kid's car (2005 325ci vert) decided to melt a coil pack and explode a transistor in the dme (which consequentially took out the neighboring transistor). After thinking this would be an easy task of replacing the dme I came to find out this car has the dreaded ms45.1. SO first...
  15. Engine Swaps
    Greetings, thought I'd bring my issues here as you guys seem to know exactly what you're talking about and your advice is imperative for nooblets like me to get anywhere and to expand our knowledge and to get things corrected. I've learned a lot here, and hope to learn more and share more...

    Hey everyone, I've got a 330Cic that I am currently working on restoring. Long story short a complete yobbo owned it before and it is now in need of some TLC. The engine main harness was cut in a couple places so I replaced it with an unharmed one. The engine is set up for MS43 as is the DME...

    I just want to state, I am getting nothing from this, I just wanted to help any E46 guys if they are looking for a tune. Where do I start, So far, I think it is great! I mean you can't expect a lot from tuning an N/A car, but I can definitely feel a difference (I went with Stage 2...

    Unfortunately these DME issues don't have as much coverage as other issues on the forum. I have pretty much exactly the same scenario as this thread here, but the OP never posted a final update: Single Cylinder Misfire I opened up the DME and saw a cracked transistor. At this point I understand...

    Hello, my car reads 130,300 miles on the cluster. CarFax states that in 2011 the car had 152,802 miles. So I decided to buy BMW Scanner 1.4 and download PA Soft in order to read the mileage stored in DME, LCM, IKE & EWS modules. Here’s what I found: DME: 0 km IKE: 209,700 km (130,300 miles)...
