    installing immobiliser to e36 ( under construction)

    so you want to install immobiliser like this one?
    if you know how to solder wires then i think you will qualify


    step first
    open up fuse box, you will want to make thieves life as hard as possible.
    you need torx screwdriver. unscrew two front screws, be careful, apply pressure, do not break torx pattern on heads.also open drivers side under dash to get acess to wires and screws that hold fuse box in place. unscrew these 4 screws to get fuse box loose

    now you can get acess to fuse box rear screws. unscrew them carefully. open the box



    now its time to locate circuits that you will immobilise
    for example green/purple wire coming from fuel pump fuse (17)is ideal. measure voltage on wire( test light or tester one lead grounded):
    ign off- no voltage
    ign on- no voltage
    crank and run- +12
    when car running, cut the wire- if engine stops( after couple seconds), you have found right one.
    you can connect it temporarily together to locate another circuit
    after that connect it to immo as on its wiring diagram

    second circuit can be ignition for ecu
    it is green wire going from connection point to engine harness connector outside fuse box
    it has power when ignition is on
    if you cut it engine will stall immediately, remember that there are couple wires in that connector cut the right one, if you miss, connect back and be more careful next time

    now connect it to immo wiring ( connect now fuel pump wire too)
    remember power comes from ignition lock and goes to engine harness:
    twin wires for immobilising, third ignition sense for immo


    power up immo:
    red pernament power
    brown ground

    solder all wires



    cut sharp edges

    isolate all connections



    locate drivers side door switch wire near drivers side speaker
    brown/gray/yellow

    never connect immo circuits on steering column. it is too easy to reconnect


    install led and antenna into center console. antenna can be located anywhere where you want, it does not work through metal

    i just uninstalled that kind of immobiliser.
    but now, the car only starts when the drivers side-door is open(!).

    any ideas?

    Engine wont crank , battery ok

    My 95 E36 318i , has an immobilizer , I just found out when it refused to crank . The auto guy found that the small pink wire at battery positive connector was a bit corroded and after a wiggle it started fine , so there is an immobilizer and it runs from the little pink wire.(this is not my dumb logic , this was the advice of the road service guy)
