I bought a 1989 BMW 325i in England a few weeks ago and it was not working and was only after a head fry but the head was skimmed and rebuilt... Now the problem is that the glove box was also ripped out of the car and wires are every where... I sorted the engine out but i think that its immbolised... I connected all the wires again with proper connectiors but it just turn over and over...

I checked the there is no spark from the spark plug... I was told it was the ECU so i replaced both the one on the drivers and passanger side... But still the same thing... If anyone has any infomation on the immboliser system on the car or any suggestions or who i should contact it will be well apprecated... Even another place on the net i should be looking anything at all will help no matter how small you think it might be...

With Thanks

OK so I can not even spell expert.

But here is a diagram from an e24 to provide a visual on the ECU and staring.

Just coonect the two green wires to bypass the OBC relay.
