Well I swapped in a JC chip for my dinan chip to test it out and now my car won't start! I'm pretty sure I put my chip in the right way it's supposed to be but now I can't get my car to fire. What's happening??
Uhh well I don't use the software type because I have a 95 325i. I have to install an actual chip. I installed the other chip back in and it worked fine...but I tryed the JC both directions and I still can't get the engine fired. It's weird.
Hmmm...I think I know what my problem may be. I bought a chip for the 325i bmws 93-94...I bought this one because the 94 means to 8/94 production. I'm not entirely sure but If I happened to have a 325i model that was made after 8/94, would that be my problem?? I'm not sure how to tell if my car was made before 8/94 or after...anyone know? Would I just look in my owners manual?
Lol Crap, my production date was 05/95....and I needed to be before 01/95. WTF!? I just always assumed they made cars the year before...i.e.- They make all the 2005's in 2004. Damn what a waste of money.
Unfortunately I got it from an ebay seller but I didn't spend too much. Does this mean that I would have to get a software upgrade?...or I can't get any. I don't think I could have got another one if I had bought it from an online store. I've done research on chips and most all of them for the 325i say 93-94 cars or 93-01/95 cars. This includes the JC chip and the dinan chip. I think there is a production cut off for the e36 92's also but I forget the exact month.
