The 91 E34 uses OBC 4. To deactivate this in the event the code is forgotten do the following;

1. Disconnect and then reconnect the battery

2. Turn ignition to position 1 only. (the horn may/will sound)

3. The OBC will now display a time of 15:00 minutes, this will now count down.

4. After the 15:00 minutes has elapsed the car may be started.

Mark.

You can reset the code. Once you start the engine the code is erased.
