Default Re: Comprehensive SMG to 6MT Conversion Thread

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."

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.

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.


Where did you end up finding the Daren files?

Default Re: Comprehensive SMG to 6MT Conversion Thread

sorry if this has been mentioned before, but in performing this swap do you need to also change the Intake Manifold? I've seen some guys selling 6speed specific intake manifolds for this very conversion and wondered why that would need to be changed at all?

thanks

Not relevant to E46s. Factory 6-speed cars don't have that in the VO either.

Hi all.
I'm a E46 M3 owner from China. Excuse me my English is quite limited.
I have recently completed the SMG to manual conversion but I have problems with the software.
The ABS and BRAKE fault lights are on all the time.
Sometimes the throttle did not respond, and full power is not available.
My friend from BMW dealership tried to remove the codes but did not succeed.

I'm hoping to get some help here.

Thanks in advance.

If I do the high beam , then they start working on the cluster panel . Also , the panel is illuminated all the time , even when then key is out . Speedometer not working as well. Not sure what it is really.

I didn ot touch any wires, except the safety clutch switch thing. Nor I coded anything beyond what I gt from the ECUWORX guys in the UK. It was SMG to manual software ( ot sure what it does exactly)

Any help appreciated a lot
