    it's in the first post, mate. picture of the engine bay with the X20 circled in red.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    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.

    Hello guy's

    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.

    Thanks again

    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...

    Strange indeed...
