: : : 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.
: It has NO effect, the check engine light does not come on. I really don't care if you do it or not. It works! Also the fellow who caught the prior owner... Listen stupid your not turning it back...your turning it off!!!! Also if your dumb enough to buy a vehicle with 70,000 miles over what the odo said, you deserve to be fucked.
Pity this won't work with the E46 etc as they don't have the speedo pickup on the diff any more - Any ideas brilliant boater ?
