    not really sure what im doing here so here goes ... ive had smg sofware issues its been to the garage ive spent just shy of £2000 and drove ok but timing out on smg adaptions .... well i went and bought a cable off ebay that came with gt1 software etc i tried doing the adaptions and it kept asking for a part number that i didnt know but noticed a button that said re-encode vehicle so i clicked that, to cut a long story short when it had finished i went for around a 3 mile drive and no change but later on that evening i went out again and the clutch slipped like mad then as i pulled up it wouldnt go into gear so i turned the car off and that was the last time it started i just get lights now doesnt even turn over .... help please what have i done ... thanks in advance for any help

    Encoding the car shouldn't have done anything bad, that would have just set things to factory defaults.

    What it probably needs is the SMG adaptation. It might not realise if the car is in gear at the moment which would result in a non start.
    I believe there is SMG adaptation in INPA, but it doesn't work all that well. I know someone else who tried it, and the clutch slip part of the test didn't do anything, but it seemed to work fine when done through the GT1.


    Need help with INPA SMG Adaptation - Bimmerforums - The Ultimate BMW Forum

    He isn't fixed yet, but he'd be closer than you are at the moment.

    thanks, i had a new clutch, actuator switch and actuator, the pump pressure was all fine but for some reason when it came to run the adaption software it kept timing out halfway through but the car was fine apart from if i changed from 3rd gear down to 2nd if i was going too slow it wouldnt engage so i had to stop then select 1st... i got used to how the car drove and could drive it without any problems but really do want the adaption software in it so dont know what ive done to it

    Bleed the clutch slave out and pump body 1 st
    Make shore you have a power supply on the car as you will need some time to go through the gear box gear adaptations you must complete this successfully before you can go on to the next
    Start from the top of the list and work your way down
    We have had may people have problems with there copy versions of inpa
    And ended up with us using 1 of our autologics to complete the process

    took it to the garage and for some reason something had held pressure and not released the clutch therefore the system thought the clutch had burnt out, he released the pressure and everything is fine .... 40 miles later and its happened again, i messaged the mechanic and he said "now we know the problem, if you get a spanner and undo the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder to release pressure and then retighten i think that will work" i replied with thats all well and good but need to find out why its doing this then he replied with " i think it must be the valve body under the main pump" ...... ive spent over £2000 on trying to sort out problems that im now wondering if they were broke in the first place please some one help im running out of money fast and getting nowhere.

    It could be a blockage in the hose pipe/twisted pipe,pump holding the pressure on,or the the sensor in the clutch slave cylinder,pressure or the clutch inclination has not been set up correctly
