this thread relates to my other one in engine conversions.
the engine going in my mates 318is was from a 325i on a 1995. the car it was removed from was complete but the car never ran, the engine just turned over all the time and never fired up.
I believe the ecu has a fault. i think that maybe it is locked, how can i remove the lock ( i have been told it can be done for £200 is this right?). It might have been the ews box instead but im not sure.
The ecu would not except a diagnostics scanner and kept kicking it out.
Could it be another non ecu problem and might it nor run in the other car (318is)? or will getting rid of the ews box remove this problem?
