    Hello everyone

    I've been advised that I need to replace the DDE control unit. As well as tracking one down, i'm getting mixed messages about needing it programed AND needing an injector for it.

    Could someone point me at someone who could clear this up for me?

    The car has been off the road now for a month and I miss her. New DDE control units are £750 so if you know of a second had supplier. Please pass me the details

    Thanks in advance

    Garrett

    What are the symptoms that suggest you need a new DDE, could well be something else.

    Also the DDE is aligned to the keys and so thy whole thing will need reprogramming if you change DDE, you can put a second-hand DDE in but you need all the keys and key barrels that came with it to do the job, you then sync the EWS and DDE using the INPA or DIS BMW software

    It's been an ongoing problem with the car not starting intermittently. We started by replacing the keys and then the immobiliser. Now the mechanic that has been working on it has said it's the DDE control unit.

    Current symptoms were that the car would turn over but the engine would not fire.

    The DDE holds the imobiliser, replacing the keys and EWS will require you to reprogram them using the BMW SSS/Progman apps.

    Ask for your money back, refit the old parts and look at either camshaft sensor or the pre-supply pump.

    Has your mechanic read the fault codes at all

    The mechanic is a current BMW technician so i'm praying to God he is getting this right...But i will ask about the cam sensor and pre-supply pump. Do you know where you can get the DDE's reprogrammed?
