Im new to this forum but not new to Bmw's nor new to the faults Abused Bmw's come with but upto now ive never had one take the p*** so much.
3 week ago this friday i tackled the task of replacing my front control arms and bushes along with roll bar bushes and links.
after completion i rewarded myself with a little country road drive to check what improvement PU bushes and fresh ball joints had to offer and to say the least i was chuffed with my work.
Until, i decided to pull over for a minute and turn the engine off.
Did my business and when i came back my key unlocked the car fine lit up the dash but would not merely turn over the engine let alone start.
After lots of time spent checking the battery, relays, Dme, and even bought 2x new keys from the dealer ive come to the conclusion the ews system is at fault.
I have replaced the Ews unit with an exact matching one and still not luck.
I also found a guide on some forums suggesting snipping 3 wire and soldering 2 of em together, Which allowed my starter to work but it just cranks and cranks.
So i am here to ask for help.
Please use Pm with any info.
and also does anyboy know why my apline headunit turns itself off once you hit a certain volume? it did this with my new and old battery but never did it in my previous car so im assuming its car related.
