    Greetings, It need help with diagnosing the cause of the no crank on my manual 320CI from 2001. (I'm kinda baffled...) Roughly a month ago, I was parked and the car didn't crank at all, after a few minutes and a dozen of tries, it finally started. The car was working fine until last week...

    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...

    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)...

    Hey guys, major issue, and I’m pretty much shaking right now. I tried putting a new key to the Ews and I’m not too sure why it didn’t work, i gave up after some long tries but now the old key doesn’t work?? When reading both key and ews on the ak90, they both show that they are connected (same...

    Hey E46ers, My '03 325Ci is giving me some trouble. Won't crank or start. Would start after a few tries before, but now nothing. I've done a ton of troubleshooting with ISTA and no go. I've got an "80 - EWS transmission/parity" code among others pictured. From what I understand, the problem...

    Hello! I am having an awful time trying to get my 2000 BMW 323ci manual in which I have swapped in a m54b25 running. I have taken the dme from the 325 which the engine came from and have had it reprogrammed with an ews bypass. The drive by wire accelerator pedal I have also wired up to the DME...

    So I bought an ak 90 a few weeks back and programmed my own keys. All went as it should and the keys are great. I’m trying to help a guy out I know with an e46 but I’m unsure yet if he has an ews 3 or 4. I know with the ews 4 soldering is require which isn’t an issue as I’m pretty skilled in...

    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...
