62. BMW E36 EWS Bypass

I've came across an E36 that had EWS system trouble...

There's a lot of Info about E36 EWS Bypass on the net, so I'll post everything I dig up...

This is the first thing I came across:

The thing makes sense. So, I'll try this today. I'll let you know how it works.
(note, the picture of the relays is not from an E36 - might be from a Z3, but I'm not sure.)


  1. So did the bypass work?

  2. Um...
    No. :c)

    But we did a complete harness/ecu/ews/lock swap from another car, so I stopped looking for bypass solutions.

    1. No, it didn't :)
      I've already said it in the comment above :)
      In the end, we had to do it the 'hard' way - swapped all ews related electronics.
