    Chapter GMW | E30 LS1 (starting on post #1427)

    An old buddy of mine, Jon (@thic_f30), was in town and took a bunch of pics and videos. He drove the wagon and I was in the E30. Video footage coming soon!

    New, new pump threw an Inactive Suspension code. Popped on my computer with INPA and the pump would not work when I tried to activate it. Took it apart and found one of the three bolts holding the pump up in the metal dome fell off as well as a popped fuse. Replaced the fuse and tightened up all the bolts and INPA tested it again and it worked. I messed around with the ride height tuning feature of INPA and will have to zero it in a couple of mm. Place your bets on how long until the next air suspension code/problem! I'm going to say 2 weeks. An old buddy of mine, Jon (@thic_f30), was in town and took a bunch of pics and videos. He drove the wagon and I was in the E30. A grand time, and a lot of 3rd gear pulls, were had.

    Mike swapped lines and the leak switched sides. The 3rd Doorman pump is on it's way. Thank goodness for a lifetime warranty. I also have the BMW 1.4 scanner & software coming to recode the M5 cluster to the 540i VIN so I can hopefully code the rest of the IKE.

    Driver's side air suspension bag replaced with oem bmw. As I was pulling into Mike's garage the code for inactive air suspension came on the dash. Perfect timing! He also popped on the front M5 under panel. Hopefully the confirmed old leaking bag was the problem! The morning will tell all. Fingers crossed!

    First, family of 4, road trip to Door County was a success! Need to work out a few bugs and find & fix a new slow leak in the rear air suspension. Bugs include: - Code IKE to S62 coolant temp. Getting an engine light due to coolant temp mismatch. (Need to swap back in 540i cluster to get the NCS software to work then swap back M5 cluster. Need all VIN numbers to match in the modules otherwise I can't code.) - Look into fuel tank purge valve. Getting a code from that not doing it's job for one reason or another. - Adjust headlights.

    Did some coding to get the DSC light off and threw on the summer wheels! Had to switch 2 sensitivity settings to S62B50 and the light went off! Went from 10 to 13 on one and 3 to 2 on the other. I still need to get the dsc/abs module to think it is a manual but that needs to be done through the IKE (cluster) but I already popped in the M5 cluster so the VINs don't match up. Might need to pop in the 540i cluster to code it to manual then swap back to the M5 cluster. Need to look into this further.
