Once the ecu has been programed and encoded to the car you will have to make sure that the ecu has been aligned with the EWS control unit or it will not send a start signal to the starter motor

My spotlights for a bmw e46 320 coupe wont work but if i remove the bulb and holder and fiddle with it on voth sides it will work ,,so i put it back into the holder working and turn off the lights and back...

Hi obviously your fuse is ok as you can hear power going to the fuse box when you hit the switch hence the clicking noise, i suggest you check the connections on the back of the fog lamp and make sure they are not loose as this is a common fault, if they are loose simply secure them and your done.
Hope this helps

I have a problem with my bmw 325td. i had it parked up for a while in the garage and the battery went completly flat. i tried to jump start it but when i turn the key the engine will not fully turn over....

hi, you need to get a good battery if yours is to flat then even using jump leads then this wont put enough power into your battery to allow it to start, what you need to do is take your battery off the car but dont close the boot with the battery off as you wont open it again if the car is locked its best you leave the car unlocked and then give your battery a full charge over night.

Or replace the battery with a new one you should find that your car will start with no problems after doing this

Bmw e36 328i cuts out at idle,wont krank,runs rough at idle.

The battery could still be bad and if you don't have a totally good battery in the car it won't run right. Take to one of the parts stores and they can check it for you for free. Probably as simple as a battery.

The fan may have a separate control module which is going faulty. I would let a dealer diagnose it for you (fix a price with them first) and if you repair turns out to be simple carry it out yourself to save on cash.
