    Nothing's going to happen in IGN position 1 because the K-Bus on the port is not powered up. Try IGN position 2.

    Possibly a faulty unit then. Can you try it on another BMW?

    Is it not possible to just ground out a couple of pins on these?

    Sure I read that somewhere here! Or was that for the earlier cars?

    On my E46 (2001 - 16 pin connector) you can do it with the button on the left of the clocks...

    That was for the earlier E36 car's Kevin. You need a dedicated reset tool for E46 models from 1998 to early 2001. Dash reset thereafter
