instead of running a wire from pin 8 in the diagnostic connector (i think your talking about that one from what you've said) to the back of the dials pin 16 in the car to get the EML light to flash in the car.
What about pushing a wire into the pin #8 in the diagnostic port, connecting it to an LED then a wire going from an LED to earth. wouldnt this mean you could connect it, tap the accel. pedal 5 times, read the code and then disconnect it, it would save running wire through the car and removing the clocks etc.
i may try it sunday and let you know the results.
from what i understand running the pin #16 wire to the pin 8? on the clock which would then run to earth is the same setup as i mention above??
I just ran a wire from the connector under the bonnet round the slam pad where the lighting wires run down to the grommet behind the brake servo. put the wire throught the grommet and it comes out next to your accelerator pedal. and just run it into the clocks. Had to poke a little hole on the clocks so I could actually see the Check Engine light go on as it was blanked on my clocks.
i take it that its a 12 volt circuit so a 12 volt LED or bulb is needed?
Has anyone got what each of the pin numbers is on the diagnostics port on the E36? Im looking to find out if one of the pins is an earth??
Here is the link I been using ever since I found on one of the threads. Just Im not sure what pin is the check engine light on a 318. http://www.autolib.diakom.ru/CAR/BMW...NG%20DIAGRAMS/
