    My car finally messed up when I had time to work on it. So I jumped the two wires at the EWSII unit and it started right up. I figure the relay in the unit might be bad so I pulled the board out and made a permanent bypass. I really hope Iím done with this problem. Incidentally, this also has permanently bypassed my clutch switch. I donít care, so long as it starts.

    BMW has added certain items to cars at the tail end of a production run like adding EWSII and OBDII to late production 95's. I'm betting that the 323 was one of those cases. The 323 was only produced for the last two years of the e36 run.
    They started the transition of putting clutch safety switches in the late 96 and 97 e36s

    "Safety switch"?

    It's an idiot switch. Seriously, if you need one of those your driving license should be revoked.
