I was going to post up my readings from my E46, but, my DME is f'ed up.
Here's what my book has to say on the subject:
1.0 Vechicle Identification Number (last few digits)
1.1 Body Number
6_1.2 Part number of cluster
1.3 Coding/diagnosis/bus index
1.4 Manufacturing date (calandar week/year)
1.5 Hardware/software version of cluster
3_1.6 Injection status, number of cylinders, engine factor
TEST 2: Cluster system test - activates gauge drivers, indicators and LEDs to confirm function
3.1 Periodic inspection days (euro)
4.0 Current Fuel Consumption Liters/100km
4.1 Current Fuel Consumption Liters/Hr
5.0 Fuel Consumed Liters/100km
5.1 Distance to go
6.0 Fuel Level Average
6.1 Total Tank averaged
1_6.2 Indicated value and tank phase (1=both ok, 2=one faulty, 3=implausible input)
7.0 Coolant temperature input in C
7.1 Outside temperature input in C
7.2 Engine Speed in RPM
7.3 Vehicle Speed in km/hr
TEST 8: Hex Code, instrument cluster inputs
TEST 9: Battery Voltage in volts
TEST 10: Country coding (02=US)
TEST 11: Cluster Code
TEST 12: (not used)
TEST 13: Gong Test, activate by pressing button
TEST 14: Fault memory (not for diagnosis)
TEST 15 - 18: (not used)
TEST 19: Lock and unlock tests 3 - 21. To unlock, press cluster button immediately when it chages to L-OFF.
20.0 Fuel consumption data correction in the 1s position
20.1 Fuel consumption data correction in the 10s position
20.2 Fuel consumption data correction in the 100s position
TEST 21: Software reset
When I ran this test on my E46, the data I got was the following:
So according to ^, line 1.4, my 1999 328i was made in the 7th week of 2001. Oh, and according to line 1.6 it came with no engine.
. Guess that's just another link to the gremlins in my circuits.
And I cannot access any other test. I can only scroll through TEST 1.
I think I may need a new DME (or whatever it's called). Just can't afford that now.
