    Hi there

    I completed my convertion yesterday, however i cannot get the car to run. I have changed the ews box, key, transpoder etc. Before the car would turn over with the old key, ews box etc. So i changed them to the 328 ones, which will then marry up with the ecu. However the EWS Box on my 318is is black and the one that i have installed from the 328i is white? The boxs also have diffrent HW and SW numbers. Counting the pins the 328i also looks like its got another wire on it. Does anyone know anything about this and the best ways in which to solve it.

    Cheers

    Deklan

    looks like you are converting between EWS2 and EWS3.

    where is this extra pin?

    you could do with checking a few of the wiring diagrams

    today i continued to play check everything you lot said, im not so sure its ews now becuase, the engine turns over now which indicated the ews has disabled correctly, to check the 318is internal looom will connect with the 328i loom correctly? becuase there are extra wires in the loom which dont marry up?? any help would be great the conversions done apart from this :(

    Can you confirm that you have changed over the ECU, EWS module from behind the glovebox and the EWS chip from the keys please

    I didn't see the ECU mentioned but I'm guessing that you have changed this. Sounds like a silly question but this has been the case on many other conversions

    Also, check that the crank sensor is plugged in correctly Trust me, I've been caught on this one

    What battery are you using? The 6 pot requires a lot more cranking

    I've not had a problem on one yet but you may need to investigate the wiring from the vehicle loom and engine loom.
