I'm confused on a step in the wiring this part in particular is confusing. Where is the ground connector is it a specific wire I should be looking at? My cruise control is not working even after a shop used autologic to do the programming.

"Next connect the ground connector from the SMG ECU to the DME pin 20 at connector x60002 (24 pin black connector) next to the 9 pin power connector on the engine DME. Note that pin 20 on the DME is blank, and you will need to disassemble it and insert the wire with a female pin that will click into place."

Hey guys, what brand 14x1.5 tap did you have good luck with?

My tap is extra long on the tapered end*(napa) and it bottomed out before cutting threads all the way down. Which clearly didnt allow the sensor to screw in all the way flush with trans.

I ended up having to file the threads on the switch, which did the trick but for next time i'd really like to not have to do it.

You need a bottoming Tap, here is the set of them I bought off amazon, or you can order an individual but they are usually more than this set, the bottoming gets the threads at the bottom of the hole.

Thanks Daniel.


On a different note holy shit i am about to blow a gasket.

Does anyone know how to update the winkpf daten files or what could be wrong?

Took me hours to figure out and find the daten download for e46. Now using the winkpf update tool , but when i select the folder containing the the daten it gives me an "not a valid SP daten folder" What the hell!

I dont know if any of the above are related to it but part of the issues is when doing pdate zusb or via vin nothing comes up the list is blank.

Alright so hopefully this will help someone. All the issues i had with daten files and inability to update was because the downloads did not contain "BASE' file/folder. Was able to update without issues and flashing DME to european flash recomended by Terra.

What i have not seen in this thread is the zusb number for the cluster klm and dsc modules.

Whats the best way to look up the software number...or where?
