BMW E36 EWS II BYPASS COMPUTER SWAP
http://www.mybimmerspace.com This video contains a simple way to bypass the
EWS II immobilizer in your 94-95 325i,is E36 6 cylinder in the event your
DME has failed. "Elektronische Wegfahrsperr". It allows you to replace your
current Silver label DME with an earlier Maroon label 413 DME that was used
between 92-94 on 325 series BMW's. EWS II was introduced on the late model
year of 94-97 BMWs although this bypass does not apply to 96 and newer
BMW's----- BMW models built before 1996 carry an OBD-I computer with
removable chips and 96 and up BMW's carry an OBD-II computer which has no
removable chip. With this bypass you still need your key & transponder to
activate the starter so you still have that safety.
Please consult your owners manual when doing repairs. Thanks M.B.S.
Idiot drives to Nürburgring in the snow with his E36 BMW 328i
The idiot is me. ;) Read more here:
People told me I was an idiot for wanting to drive my track car in the
snow. Here I've fitted the original 15" alloys with 195/60-15 Kleber
Kristalp mud and snow tyres. 1000ft up via hairpins and forest roads, with
a massive grin on my face.
