1211 - DME, Motronic computer, related fault - which may indicate problem with car computer itself. Delete any stored codes and perform following test: Start the car and let it run for 30 seconds; Turn off car and let it sit for another 30 seconds; Perform diagnostic test again; If the same flash code re-appears DME should be replaced

I should have the ecu - pm if interested

You need a 173 ecu (out of a 325i).

Pretty readily available.

jamison67 11-11-2009 01:04 PM

and wit the 173 its compatible wit the stroker markd chip i have i will be able t use that wit no problums

You need to determine whether your car has a 153, or 173 DME. And no the chips are not interchangeable between the two.

so this means thaat i am going to have to tottaly retune my car,,,i cant just take the one chip out of mine and put it into the new one

craz azn 11-11-2009 09:57 PM

Maybe not, again, it depends what computer is in your car. Then once you figure that out, find the same DME as a replacement, and the chip can be swapped over.

well bad news,,,,,i picked up another ecu this weekend and put it in and performed the stomp test again and it came up again that the dme was a problum,,,,,couls it be that there is a problum with something else wiring or something and its not the ecu,,,,,,this is driving me crazy ,,,,if anyone can give me a hand in what u think that would be great
