...the Check Engine light that turns on and sets a fault code because the DME no longer has the vehicle's speed sensor input??
: : ???????????
: Ok boy's as you can see I'm not afraid to post my email. Who cares if you disconnect, fuck the next guy or the dealer your trading it into. Isn't that what this post is about?
: Here how to do it. Remove the back seat the pick up (what sends a signal) to your display (odo)is located there (wires). Carefully jack up the rear of car using a volt meter while the engine is running and wheels turning "test" the line for signal, a beeping meter is best, the faster you go the faster it beeps, that's how you know you "hit" the correct wire. Shut the vehicle off. Remove battery cable. Cut wire, put in an on/off switch hidden under seat. Now when you go in for service odo on. Any questions? Want to see photos? Email me direct and I will be happy to help you. Afterall what's better than beating the shit out of your car and selling it as a low mile garage queen to some unsupecting sap who's stupid enough to buy a used M3.
