    2000 323 Ci, 190000 miles. Hi, Just got INPA running. Can anyone help with what this means? I'm guessing that "1" is the limit of goodness, so since it's showing green I'm good. Cylinder 6 is consistently worse. The others move a round a little and can be 0 at any time. Overall the...

    Hello, today i was tracking errors with INPA. To have it all nice and clean, i used F9 to print the codes (expecting it to create a pdf). What happened is that it said it saved the file, then cleared my codes and that's it. I've been searching the pdf file since then. Does anybody know where...

    I have a cable that I bought on Amazon that lets me use INPA and NCS expert, but when I tried to use PA soft it wouldn't work. Is this a driver issue or do I need a different cable specifically for PA soft? Here's the link to the cable I bought...

    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...

    First post here because usually any issue I've ever had with my e46 330i has been identified and resolved using past comments! Anyways, I recently bought a e46 M3 (May 1, 2003) because my 330i (October 2001) has been so good to me. After running Ista+ 4.07 on it, I found a bevy of weird "No...

    Hello, I've been having strange behavior from my AC lately. Hot air only from floor and defrost vents no matter what I manually set the AC and dash thumb wheel to. I've been reading about that a lot and I wanted to try to scan the IHKA system for errors and get some readings before I tried...

    Now tools like OBD Fusion and PA Soft might all be part of your arsenal for an e46 but there are times when neither of these will do the job. Good examples are Brake Module replacements, or Steering Angle Sensor calibrations. This is why every e46 owner needs a working copy of dealer level...
