    it is now not wanting to start all it is doing is showing the ignition lights and asking for codes both from the CD player and the computer bit where it display's your MPG and your fuel consumption since your last fill of fuel ECT . i am most not happy as i have had to leave it at work and my boss is not happy either as it is taking up valuable space and i need it to get to work cant afford to loose it

    someone please guide me in the right direction i have contated the main dealer where it was first purchased fromand they said it was not a code that they held in there data base it is a code that the previous owners had put in off there back and can be changed but i cant change it without getting the correctcode that is present at the moment so i contaced the previous owner and they have forgotton it and they have no copy of it either .

    please help me someone they are both 4 digit codes

    I'd hate to think how many combinations there could be

    Lucky for you my friend I have a very good contact who used to work at BMW and should be able to assist you.

    His name is James and he now runs his own motorsport tuning company called Redish Motorsport. You will find his contact details in the "Garages" section of the forum.

    If he is not able to assist you then I really don't know who will be able to as he has managed to bypass BMW EWS codes in the past on some of his previous projects.

    Good Luck and in future please remember that "everyone" is a specialist on the internet - until it goes pear shaped
