Default JB4 EWG on B58? - 07-25-2018, 04:53 AM

Hi all,

After scouring the internet, here and on Bimmerpost I cannot for the life of me find the EWG connection.

I think I've seen it on the left side of the engine just... but I've not managed to disconnect it to figure out if its the right connector. Has anyone got a picture of a B58 engine or diagram to show me exactly where it is?

Frustrating!!

Pretty sure I found the right place:



But once connected I got a Drive train error which wouldn't go with a number of fault codes including 164020 Inlet Camshaft Sensor - Signal High.

I can only assume i've done it wrong some how??

That’s the right place, so be sure everything is seated and connected well. If you still have problems then make sure your wires aren’t overheating and contacting. Mine were too close to the exhaust manifold and melted.

If that is not your issue then with the harness connected get a voltmeter and check the signal the EWG pins give out at idle. You will have to remove the pins from the JB4 amp connector which requires a dsub removal tool. PITA.

I didn't have one of the pins pushed far enough in and no drivetrain issues or CEL's which is good news.

Still on map 1 but will try map 6 with Bullitt's settings this weekend!

Thanks for the help!
