    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...

    Hey guys, I have a 2001 325I, recently I changed the spark plugs and the entire machine stopped turning on. No crank; no start; no noises. Ive replaced the starter, fuel pump, coil packs, and battery. Everything turns on and all lights show up, but my temperature gauge shoots up to the middle...

    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...

    Hello My BMW e46 325i with an automatic gearbox from 2003 wont start when it is hot sometimes. It starts just fine most of the time but sometimes when the car has been running for a while and I turn it off it wont start again, it can take 1 minute to 4 hours for it to crank again. It has been...

    I recently bought an 03 325xi from a friend of mine. He had the key taped up. The buttons didn't work and upon peeling off all the tape I found out the battery was missing (the original terminals were still soldered to the board). I watched the battery replacement procedure and didn't seem any...

    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...

    Good Morning. Looking for assistance with an M3 w/SMG. I believe that this issue is related to the SMG Transmission. Background: Due to other issues cropping up around the same time I recently replaced the Starter and the Throttle Position Sensors; I replaced all 3, but the sensor at the...

    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...

    Found myself switching vehicles the other day as I needed to get to the airport. My 330Ci (automatic) wouldn't start... Car ran fine on Friday night then it sat until I needed it on Sunday afternoon. Turned the ignition key and got the typical whirrs and clicks and full dash power but only a...

    Hi all, I've done plenty of searching, but I've failed to find someone with the exact same situation as me. Basically, one day, shortly after a cooling system rebuild, the car was unusually hard to start. It took two tries to get it to fire up. I thought nothing of it and proceeded. Later...

    Hello members, I'm a newb and trying to diagnose a NO CRANK NO START issue with my gf's 05 325i. I changed out the CCV due to a leak and cracked hoses and now all I hear is a click when trying to start. I've double checked all connections (actually took everything apart except for ccv and...

    I am trying to get my laptop setup for coding and hooked it up for the first time today. I am obviously missing something because I loaded INPA and the only options were "Info", "Script" and "End", when I clicked on "Script" I got " Couldn't find INPA configuration...

    As of the start of this year in my car I've replaced: alternator, battery, starter, ignition switch, and spark plugs. Walked out to my car one morning after driving it the night before and it wouldn't start. It wouldn't crank at all so I went ahead and ordered a new starter. Two months later...
