    Cheers djon!

    Glad to hear of your positive results with the upgrades, I've just noticed the thread ticker has surpassed 100k views :eek:

    Yes, very happy with the M2 thanks! :)

    I sorted out the mirrors a few weeks ago and have other things planned for later in the year.

    Haha thank you sir :beer:

    Hope your E46 is going well.

    I think mine has a different owner now, though unsure if the new buyer was a cutter. Would be good to see the car again.



    I've had the M2 for about a year now, very happy with it. Engine is impressive but can't quite match the induction wind of the S54, the exhaust makes up for it though.

    I took some pics last week:

    ^ A couple of updates to the interior such as alcantara trim and instrument binacle cover. More to come.


    Just realised, it's a damn good job I didn't upload these DIY pics onto photobucket! :eek: :muttley:

    Hi

    From what I remember, the software is called P.A Soft 1.4 - look for a copy on ebay with cable. You may need to modify the supplied OBD2 adapter (soldering pins) - I covered that in this thread.

    I assume with the car warm, engine running you have switched the AC on (coldest setting) and then checked to see if the fan is spinning (It can take up to 30 seconds).

    If after that, the fan still isn't switching on the only other thing I can recommend is to check the PWM wire. This is the smallest wire (green and black). It comes from the ECU - check to condition of the wire up from the ECU all the way to the fan connector.

    If you are sure that is ok, then the next step would be to wire up an oscilloscope to the PWM wire (because it's an analogue signal).

    When you attempt to test the fan again this will allow you to verify the signal is being sent out by the ECU (to switch the fan on and set rpm).

    I don't know the frequency/amplitude of the PWM signal, so you may need help from a friend/electrician to setup the oscilloscope.


    Hope that helps :)

    Ps. I need to get back into an ///M!

    many thanx for your reply, nice to see you are still giving to the community!

    Anyway the PMW wire seems ok, it is actually hard to see as it is all taped together with the other cables....

    i plugged a multimeter and there is definitely signal coming from the red/blue wire and the brown wire, both engine/ac on and engine off/ac off.

    now if i check the PMW wire with the multimeter i get something and it does change in terms of value, but clearly, as you said not true if i am checking this correctly....

    Either the motor/FSU i got sold they are faulty (struggle to beleive as they really did look brand new) or really I do not know anymore what to think...
