Alright, so after awhile my cruise quit turning on, and I should mention it never actually worked it would just enable. I got pigtails for my clutch switches and wired them up. I had to do a bit of guessing along with the known info. So here it is, if you have two clutch switches and no module on the master cylinder this is how you wire it up.:thumbdwn:Update!
While looking around in the GM5 coding with NCS Dummy I noticed a "Touring Functions" Option that was disabled. I enabled it and now my cruise works... Didn't even wire the clutch switches up yet.
I already ordered the pigtails so I will just do it anyway, I was already in the habit of braking before pushing the clutch in while using cruise but it'll be nice for it to work properly.
Its exciting that my car is fully a manual now aside from the clutch switches and reverse switch. Thanks to this thread mostly!
I really appreciate everyone's input on this thread!!!:excited:
Edit: Scratch the touring function thing.... I noticed with that enabled it said my trunk was open in my dash... I disabled it and that error went away but cruise still enables... I don't know what the hell I did at this point to be honest.:thumbdwn: Don't really care at this point if the cruise works.
No, EWS doesn't need to report manual. In reality, the "auto/manual" switch is actually a parameter that dictates whether or not the park/neutral interlock is enabled. In the US, that parameter is indeed enabled and tied to the clutch switch. So every US car will report itself as "automatic"Is the EWS supposed to report as manual as well? Need to mention that VIN has been fixed to match on the cluster since picture was taken.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
It's not too difficult. Use the clutch, flywheel, and driveshaft from the 323. Wire up the clutch switch to where the park/neutral signal would go on the EWS (I think Nervous' 6spd swap has more details on this part). Remove the rest of the auto harness, and clear the adaptions from the DME. The car should starthello guys. although I am showing as a new member I was on here a lot about 3 years ago. but unfortunately I have forgotten my user name and password. but if I did know my username I would have no chance of getting my password as I changed email a while back as well.
I have a 323ci manual complete and also a 325i sport auto. I came across this thread last week when I was looking at changing the auto to a manual. my plans include using all the parts from the 323 manual (checked on realoem and all parts are the same from the 323 as what would be fitted to the 325 if it came as a manual.
so if I swap all the manual parts over how complicated are the electrics? I need to wire up a set of wires to the fuse box for the reverse lights, but what about the electrics to get the car to start? what do I do about the autos transmission ecu? and is there some thing in the cars ecu that I need to change? I think in America the ecu is the dme
the local bmw technician said its a massive job that is to complicated due to the wiring looms ect. can you give me some advice please. I looked at Ivegotissues666 thread on this but most of the pictures are no longer there.
thanks in advance.
Thanks. You make it sound so easy. can you clear adaptions in inpa? or do I need ncs? is there not some where I need to change to tell the car it is a manual instead of automatic?It's not too difficult.
