The blue beast fired up and actually ran. The repair was a bit different but worked.
Its late, so I will make this a three part answer with photos.
The car 1995 318i that refused to start- no gas or spark.
Solution? ecu and dme relay.
I took apart the dme (photos later) and the entire thing was covered with dust dirt and corrosion. My computer guru neighbor suggested the trash bin. The cost of new was a little high and nothing to loose trying to fix this one.
I took the rom chip off the board and washed the computer with a mild solution of simple detergent and water. I used the worlds softest toothbrush, a tiny electrical brush and carefully brushed all connections. I mixed a couple of oz. of detergent and water in a ultra sonic tank for 15 minutes at a time with rinses in between. (total of 60 minutes) I let it drip dry for one hour and put the ecu in the oven at 100 degrees for one hour. The dme looks brand new. I reassembled it and put back in the car.
Did not start. Looked at the relays again and found three by them selves under a cover. A HA! The dme relay white, fuel pump relay blue (note the white dme relay provides switching power to the blue fuel pump relay- if the dme relay is dead the blue relay will not switch and there fore no fuel pump action- no fuel, no spark, no check engine light)
I spent 12 or 14 bucks for a new dme relay, plugged it in, spun it over , and it coughed for the first time in six months. The second turn of the key and it fired right up!
The alternator is dead and I needed a new battery.
I will send photos.
