Hello

I have read guides on how to activate your BMW E36 OBD from this article:
http://www.pelicanparts.com/BMW/tech...nostics%20.htm

and for my E36, I cannot get the timing right to press the petals. Does anyone know what to count or am i doing something wrong

I put the key in the second position "on",
I pump the petal 5 times.

and nothing happens!



anyone know a count i should use?

According to the Bentley manual, turn the ignition to position 2, fully depress the pedal 5 times within 5 seconds. If it doesn't work, try a different rhythm, but 5 times within 5 seconds.

Also, what year car do you have? It only works on e36's between 1992 and 1995. OBD2 is all computerized and the pedal trick won't work.

What I did was to Press "Check Control (C/C)
" before switching to "on" and kept my finger there -Reading is Temperature.
Then switched to "on" whilst depressing the accelerator pedal;
Quickly Release C/C then re-Press, C/CReading changes to CHECK CONTROL OK
Pump Accelerator 4 times and release
Whilst still depressing the C/C button (Do not release it)
Then I got lines grouped in sequences of 1,2,3 and 4.
Wrote them down counting how many lines each series contained.
My reading is 1/3/4444444/2/1/4444/3/44/1/33/44 . What it means boggles my mind.But am still surfing for explanation.
