What year is this E36 M3? Even 1995 M3's had EWS but not the same as the s52's which use an MS41 DME.

If you have a 97 - 99 car, I may be able to lend you a DME to test your car. Someone in Mississauga has it right now.

The engine DME won't let the car run without getting a signal from the EWS module that the proper key is in the ignition. You need to have it aligned at the dealer.

And please, please, PLEASE do not ever work on your own car if you think you can "run a wire" from the ignition to your starter.

Your starter requires atleast 250amps to operate, if your lucky the worst that will happen is the car will catch on fire.

I do have a tool but I'd rather just lend you a DME with EWS removed and then you can take your car to a garage and have the EWS aligned. RMP or some other garages can do it.
