BMW SERIES 5 E34 ECU Unit

I took my car to my bmw mechanic because the check engine light is on. He connected his computer to my car and he said the only way I am going to turn off the check engine light off is by replacing the E.C.U. unit. I think. He es talking about the computer. My question is. Can someone gime some ideas how can I replace this unit or can give me some links where I can get some help. I think the unit has to be programed first before installation. Thanks

No programing needed. you will have to make sure you have the right computer as they were different for each engine (there may have been more than one for each engine.. not quite sure). Once you have the correct ecu all you do is open the psgr side electronics box in the engine bay locate the ecu. Remove its harness and the clips that hold it in and put the new one in. Make sure your coils are good.

BMW SERIES 3 E36 ECU and ECM Recalibration

OK i want to know what the difference between both of these which is better to get they they cost around the same price. If any of you guys know or have had any of these done or have done both at the sametime could you tell me how it went for you And what performance chip do you guys recommend conforti have you head of this httpwww.20horsepower.com ps if anyone is selling their chip im interested in purchasing it . has to be compatible to a 94 325is. I think have to check the ecu to.

can be used to flash the ecu with new software. OBDI guys such as ourselves have to physically remove the ecu from the car open it up and swap out the chip. Software is not somewhere you want to get the cheapest thing available. Bad software can do a lot of harm to an engine. Stay away from Ebay chips and wierd no-name universal power module thingys like the link you posted. Go with a REPUTABLE bmw

BMW SERIES 6 More Driving Impressions of the ECU Upgrade

Had a better chance today to test out the impact of the UPsolute ecu re-map that I installed yesterday. Out on country roads with which I am very familiar (today was cool but dry) I did notice that the DTC came on a number of times while under full acceleration out of turns. My driving style has always been to take an early apex and begin smooth progressive acceleration right at the apex and then rocket

The immobilizer is built into the ecu. Swapping it out with one from another car will cause your car never to start. The immobilizer control unit (EWS) communicates with the key fob and the ecu to make sure everything matches. If not then no go. It is not possible to recode the ecu to a different EWS. Youll need to swap out the EWS from the same donor car and re-code your keys. Alternatively you can

BMW SERIES 3 E36 E36 1997 316i I can not locate the ABS ECU

Hello I really need your help. I have a 101997 edition E36 316i 4dr. Recently ny ABS light came on and I took it to the dealer. They told me the ABS ecu unit is bad and that it costs 850 Euros to replace. I have searched ample threads and have located different info which I have followed i.e. ordered new relays etc. The real problem is that I have dismantled the dash in order to get to the ABS ecu

This sort of thing should probably be dealt with by a bmw dealer after all it is messing around with a system vital to driving safety It exists if you have a lit up ABS light its just you were probably looking around too low down. It is about the same dimensions as a car radio only slimmer. I just checked my Haines manual and it is located behind the glove box on the doorside wall of the car above where the speaker unit is. You need to remove the glove box to gain access I think.

BMW SERIES 5 F10 F11 Tuning ECU Flash Pig Tail Question

I am just coming out of a Porsche Turbo. There are a significant number of ecu Flashes that range in price from 700 - 2000. As far as I know there are not any pig tail options. The price variation is largely based on upgradibility (stage 1 2 3) and customization but on the low end you can get 70HP for 700 which is a great HP price. From what I know about chip tuning non turbo engines the cost per

BMW SERIES 5 E39 How do I confirm that I have the GS 8.60.4 ECU on my M54 with the automatic tranny

Bimmer died on a 9% downslope today three times then drove 15 miles with no problem. Cleared the codes ( due to the known SES presence of extraneous codes due to this experiment in progress ) idled for about ten minutes this resulted in no codes. Then drove about twenty highway miles and saw the following pending codes P0171 (pending) P0171 bmw-FC202 System Too Lean (Bank 1) P0171 bmw-FC227 System

BB I never thought Id answer one of your questionst o give you info but after looking myself and having some background with car assembly(I worked at NUMMI in Fremont for 10 years) Im 99.5% certain (without looking) that your ecu is GS 8.60.4. There arent too many companies in the world to design differing parts when the basic item is the same e.g. 528i with 5-speed auto would all have the same ecu

Unfortunately there is no DME location information in that page of Realoem as the little car in the bottom right box has no pointer to the DME location. Googling for the part number 12147551616 (Electronic basic control unit DME MS43 FLASH) I find that same control unit used in a variety of vehicles as you noted (e.g. both the525i E39 M54 2001-2003 & the 530i E39 M54 2001-2003). So I guess I need to

I dont know about wiring sorry... but... IF it goes so far that you need whole new ecu box you might consider updating to 318. Early 316 and 318 have same engine just camshaft adjustment unit and ecu make the difference. Would give you 12bhp more. Just IF you dont find cheap way out.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Bizarre ECUengine problem

I have a bizarre problem with our 318i Touring M43 engine (non-US) after a top end rebuild. The cam position sensor appeared to be faulty (bad idle and generally a bit rough). Also the coolant temp sensor appeared to faulty (by stopping the cooling fan from ever running) with the sensor connected the fan never ran even under extreme conditions however with the sensor disconnected the fan would run

for a short while after a normal hot or cold start can anyone confirm this Ive just tested the old and new coolant temp sensors and the results are pretty much the same 2.48K and 2.46K ohms respectively at an ambient 22 degs 0.33K and 0.35K ohms at a temp just off boiling.

The HU should always be connected to a constant 12v. The ignition needs to be connected to the HU so it knows when to turn on and when to shut off.

You need a constant 12v from the battery. One option the installer can do is
