    Need to know what EWS is? What years it changed? What it controls?

    Then look here for the main write up on all EWS systems. http://www.bmwmotorsports.org/BMW_docs/EWS.pdf.

    Look here for some EWS II info http://www.turnermotorsport.com/pages/EWS-II.htm

    And here for some brief EWS I info http://www.turnermotorsport.com/pages/chip_id_new05.htm

    Also be careful not to drop the keys or throw them as this can break the coil windings in the key which will then cause the EWS to not get a signal and the car will not be able to be driven

    I've been informed that leaving the keys in a bag or pocket next to items such as mobile phones can also cause malfunctions within the key (includes being too close to computers too)
