I have a 95 325is that had a S50 swap (with wiring harness and DME) performed but there doesn't seem to be an electrical connector from the harness or vacuum line from ??? to connect to the fuel pressure regulator/ return valve located under the driver seat on the bottom of the car. I bypassed the regulator with the hopes that the S50 has the regulator built into the fuel rail as I've "heard" and the engine will start after VERY long cranking but idles high and will abruptly stall. Check engine light at times but it's OBD1 so....
Any ideas? I'm kind of at a loss and don't have the $ to pay a tech straight time to figure it out as it's not my daily driver. ANY help will be appreciated more than an email can properly convey!
Hello Nick, I had read that there was a 101 projects book coming out for the mini, I really found the 101 projects book for my Boxster helpful, and want to get its companion for my wife's mini. I don't find it anywhere, is it out yet? If not, when might it come out?
We are AutoX our 1998 318ti and it has the upper and lower braces, sport springs and Bilstien Shocks. Looking to firm and adjust the front suspension for autox and looking for suggestions. Solid Bushings? Offset Bushings? Camber Adjustment?
Can you please visit my recent post? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
I have a 1993 325is and my blinkers and hazards quit working. I replaced the turn signal switch, the relay and checked the fuse box and bulbs for loose connections and still nothing. Can you help? Also, trunk won't latch. I found some bare places in the wiring at the trunk, but I covered those. Still nothing blinking!
Hey, Nick--can you take a look at the clutch post in the MINI section? I don't know enough about the clutches to answer. I thought I knew what was going on with the post, but I don't.
I have a 2003 Mini Cooper S with Xenon HID's that I want to convert to halogen. I have always had trouble with the HID's so I would rather just switch.
My concern is if the switch to halogen is even possible. Is it just a matter of plug and play with the existing wiring or is there more involved.
Currently my passenger side HID's lowbeam will not turn on. It used to be intermittent but not completely will not turn on. The high beam works and I have checked the bulbs and they are both fine. I have tested the ballast by switching the two but with the same results. I have not found a solution after looking through many different forums, so I would just like to convert to halogen.
Any help or advice would be appreciated. Can I just convert to halogen?
I have a or some problems with my DME in my E36 325i 12/1990 (Euro).
It started with loosing ignition on cyl.3, and apparently no voltage to the no.3 injector. I changed the coil, but still no spark.
A used DME (403) ran for approx. 10-15mins.
I found out the coil driver no.3 was fried and changed them all to BU323Z. This worked for 10 sec.!
Reading the OBD1 codes I get a short blink_pause_long blink etc. I read this as 1 - "Fuel Pump Relay (EKP) / RPM Signal" witch could be crank sensor!?
Measuring the cam/ crank- sensors (both brand new) in my X6000 DME connector between pin16 - pin44 (cam) I get 1K296 ohm and no connection to ground.
But between pin88 - pin67 (crank) I dont get anything (now), but I get 0,0 ohm from pin88 to ground!
Measuring the cranksensor directly, I get 0K96 ohm.
Am I right concluding I have a short in my wiringloom either from shield to pin88, or ground to pin88, if I`m useing the right scematics?
