Any faults? If the DME and the EWS module come out of sync DME will not pulse the injectors or fire the spark plugs. This is a anti-theft system. To correct this the system has to be realigned this can be done with a BMW tester like the ISID.

no faults, don't have a isid any manual way of doing it
Expert:  Kenny replied 2 years ago.
There is no other way of doing it. The dealer should only charge a hour to do it.

ok got the scanner to sync , but says cannot communicate with ews , checked all power wires to it ok , is ews fried and if I get a new onw does it have to be coded or install and just sync dme and ews?
Expert:  Kenny replied 2 years ago.
If you can not communicate with the EWS module I would agree it is faulty and would need to be replaced. Yes it would need to be encoded and synced still.

Will the dealer encode it with the Vin then I can sync it
Expert:  Kenny replied 2 years ago.
They will need the vehicle and encode it and sync it to the vehicle.
