Ok, my brother has a Uk spec E30 325i, 1985/6 model. Driving along and the engine suddenly cut out and will not restart.
First off, I've tried getting the error code from the ecu as suggested in the FAQ but can't get it working. Does it work for this model and if so can anyone tell me how quickly/at what interval to push the peadl down.
Secondly (biggie I know) any suggestions on things to check? We're both mechanically minded but I know nothing about BMWs and my brother doesn't do internet :P

The fuel pump relay has been checked and is working. We got the ECU back yesterday and that's passed 2 simulations now so should be fine.
We're now completely stumped and have checked everything down to the inhibitor switch on the auto gearbox.
Can we get a fault code (asuming there is one) from the ecu by pressing the gas pedal 5 times after turning the ignition on? If so roughly how long between presses?
