  1. Anyone in SE Kent, I need my abs ecu matched to my car as it is a replacement.
  2. I didn't get any replies to my last question, but I think I know the answer now as I looked at the differences between the DSC and ASC ECU and there are 2 extra sensors in the DSC ECU, so although it will physically fit, I'm not sure what the 2 sensors doing nowt will throw up in way of issues/possible errors, so I have decided to scrap the ASC ECU/ABS pump as it isn't obviously suitable. So my second question is. I have the part numbers on my DSC ECU, how important is it that the part numbers match exactly, or will any DSC ECU be ok? I know it will need coding to my car after fitting.
  3. Hello, My car is a 51 plate 330D and I have the dreaded 3 lights on the dash which I know indicates there is an issue with the ABS system and more specifically I believe it is the ABS ecu, as the error code is 5DF5 (internal ecu fault). I have removed from a 2002 320D the complete ABS unit, but on inspection it has ASC written on it, whereby mine has DSC written on it. They are both ATE-MK60 units. As I believe the ecu part is faulty, I was going to swap this part over so I wouldn't have to remove the whole system and then get the new one coded to the car. I have plugged the "donor" ASC ecu to see if the 5DF5 code persisted and it didn't, only an old wheel sensor code from the donor car. Can this be done with then only having to code the part to the car or is there more to it? My only other option is to send the faulty part off to a specialist as BMW will want silly money to sort it.
  4. My fob died today, so after a bit of research, I have bought a spare battery from Flea bay in readiness to do a bit of soldering etc etc. However, when I have prised the key apart there doesn't seem to be a transponder in it like those I have seen on Google/you tube etc. I seem to have, the blade, both sides of the shell, a piece of black plastic that goes over the middle button and the unlock button and the circuit board with battery attached. Deffo no separate transponder! So my question is, do the early keys (my 330D is a 2001) have a built in transponder?
  5. Got any pics or links please?
  6. Has anyone bought a replacement gear knob from Ebay and if so any recommendations. Seen some replica M sport ones, but sometimes it's buy cheap buy twice!!
  7. Just bought a 330D as it was too good to turn down with low miles for one of these 138K and loads of history. Usual arches (rear) that going to sort out first and then got a list that includes wheels/stereo/possible front seat swap (although the current ones have no drivers bolster wear) and possible remap. From Folkestone, Kent Pics to follow and any stereo ideas, please pm me
