Hi guys, i am a new bmw owner and after buying what i thought was a cracking buy, i am now having a right pain in the arse.
As per the title, i bought a e36 328i coupe. I had the car for a week and the starter packed in so i changed that. With a lot off f'ing n b'ing i got it done. The car started no problem then i was advised to rejuvinate the batt with an optimizer. After doing that, i put the batt back in. The car wldnt start, not even a click from the starter. Now it is at a m8s garage who has bmw diagnostics and he has told me that the ews unit is buggered and that i will need to go to bmw n order 1 via the log book. Also he said if that doesnt work then ill need to buy a new key also and then if that doesnt work then the car, new ews module and new key will have to go to bmw to get reprogrammed.
Could anyone shed a little light on this or could anyone let me know if i can bypass the ews without going to the expense off the module, key and maybe labour costs at bmw?
Any help would be gr8 as i have had the car 4 weeks and have only drove the car 4 times..... Not happy
