    Hello, I've used WinKFP to match the DME's vin number with my ABS module. However, by doing that, the EWS got activated and the engine doesn't want to start. November 2020, I did an engine swap with which I didn't receive the EWS. When the WinKFP process has completed, I used INPA to check...

    I had recently done a manual swap in my 03 325i I brought it to a euro tuner to get the ecu recoded to get the lights off and to make the car recognize it’s now manual. After driving an hour away they told me they couldn’t connect with the EWS but were able to connect to the DME we thought the...

    Howdy. I don’t know what pin terminals to buy for adding a pin terminal to my DME and EWS. I’m in the middle of a manual swap (E46 330Ci) and need to add a terminal to DME connector x60004 pin 23 and pin 8 of the EWS connector. Does anyone know what brand, size etc. terminals to buy for this???

    Hello guys, I've tryed to make a key for an E46 and i din't know what happened but the EWS lost all its data, so the first time that I've try to read the EWS with my AK90 this said "PIN no touch" in some cases this is a normal message that appers when the connector is not correctly conected to...

    Hello, I am trying to add an EWS module to my DME bench setup. My DME Bench setup is fully working I have flashed multiple DMEs. However I added an EWS module using the following wiring listed below and it didn’t work. I tried using both inpa and MS4x flasher to resync. I received a no...

    Hello, I’ve been running ms430056 on my ECU reliably for about a month now. Wanting to upgrade to ms430069 I flashed the unmodified v69 512k file from the wiki onto the ecu in boot mode with JMGarage Flasher. The car would crank but not start. I flashed back to ms430056 and again crank no start...

    After several unsuccessful solo attempts, I had a fellow E46 owner help me make a new spare key. Two keys are now in play. I'll call the original key K1, the new key K2. He used an AK90+ and a freshly read .bin file from my EWS unit. K1 had no. 4 slot, he put K2 in 5. The key writing...

    I got a 320d recently with no key(it had been lying up 6 years). long story short I have tried two ECU/EWS packs in it. In on position no voltage going to small black poles of starter but when I cross the starter it starts instantly and runs fine. Getting 8V on the large red pole and 12v when I...

    Just bought 2 new keys for my 325i, I used an AK90 programmer to add them to new slots in the EWS, put the EWS back in the car, and now it won't start. The car cranks on the keys but will not actually run. Currently charging with a jump pack, and I will try a real jump when my mom comes home...

    Hello everyone. My father's 320d started acting weirdly. He took the car to a shop and they told him that the ECU was done and that the only solution was a swap, so here i am asking for your wisdom once again. Lets assume that the shop is right. Which im not sure about. As i've been reading...

    I am looking at a 325i that was in the process of becoming a track/drift car. The guy states the car ran fine but had a problem with the transponder, so he flashed the ecu and deleted the ews. However, now the car can't accelerate. He says it turns on and idles fine but the gas peddle is...

    Hello, I have an 03 M3 that will not start. It is an SMG car. Turning the key to the start position will not crank the car. Battery is good.

  17. Driveline, Engine & DME Tuning
    Can someone please give me a step-by-step for re-aligning the EWS with the DME on MS42? I want to virginize the DME, make it work in my 328, then once start is confirmed, I'm going to custom tune from there. Well, DME is flashed with virginized BIN file, from the Wiki page, and now when i try...

    Hi. Short story long, i have a friend that bought manual 2000(pre Facelift) 325 with a blown engine in which we have now transplanted the engine from an 02(facelift) Auto 330i. Before planning the swap i did some research and came to the conclusion that with the DME, EWS and key from the 330i...

    People with cars built before 03/03 have a MS43 DME which has been publicly cracked and can be swapped into a different car with no issues. People with cars after that date received the MS45.1 DME which has not been publicly cracked and cannot easily be swapped into any car. Usually when...

    Some weeks ago my old style key stopped locking/ unlocking doors. So I bought a new key battery and replaced it. It didn't work after, so I used the key manually and put off reprogramming the key because I have had to deal with a sickness in the family.... Wednesday I came home and locked the...
