is my 328i Registered 28-04-1995 a OBD I or II as the 328i was a M52 engine single vanos
As the depressing the accelerater pedal method doesnt work for me
forget that pedal trick, it only works on US cars.
Your car is almost OBD2, the ecu is able to do all the OBD2 stuff, but most of it has been disabled as it wasn't legally necessary in the UK
the pedal trick also works on car on OBD1 cars with this DIY. that's what i did in mine, and works perfectly.
I've been reading this with interest. I live in Iceland where we have the Euro model cars.
I have a 1995 318is with an M42. It's supposed to have a Motronic 1.7
I have tried to connect a led bulb to pin 8 on the X20 (the grey wire from the top half) and getting the 12v from F10.
The bulb works when I connect it to the body (good strong earth) so I'm obviously getting 12v from the fuse. I however cannot get the stomp test to work.
I really need to read the codes and the car is stuck in my garage. Any ideas on what's going on?
'95 318 (although a ti, rather than an iS)
Check you ECU via realoem, it's under engine electrical systems, control units,
then pick uncoded control unit.
The M1.7.2 should do the codes, but you could also get it with M5.2 which won't.
If it is the M1.7.2, check that your throttle cable isn't slack, and you are getting full throttle.
Thank you for your prompt answer
Realoem says: RMFD Basic control unit DME M.1.7.2
So according to that it should be able to do it.
Going to check the throttle cable then.
Checked the throttle cable and asked my wife to hold the gas pedal.
The TB fully opens. At least I can't move any further with my fingers...
So as all the 328i ecu's are obd2 would a obd2 reader work i know i dont have the slot under the dash but could i use the 16 pin to 2 bmw pin socket with a reader?
