Using the BMII scan tool we will figure out everything wrong with this beast.
I have a different e46 to work on. This one is a 330i (automatic) with the M54 engine. The 2-door one you've seen previously is a 330xi (manual) with the M54. In this video we'll go over why it's here. What needs fixed and I'll throw in the fan clutch replacement in part 1. Stay tuned for part 2 and beyond.
In this video I will show you how to replace the ABS module if you get the ABS code C2200 in your 2010 Dodge Challenger 3.5 V6. Code C2200 means ABS module internal failure and will illuminate the ESP, ABS, BAS and Brake lights. I will then show you how to use the Autel Maxicheck diagnostic scan tool to reinitialize your new ABS module so it will work with your car after replacement.
How to check if key fob battery is good. If your key fob is damaged, this video will show you how to switch your innards from the original fob to the new fob shell. This will keep your switch blade key intact for your Camaro and avoid that stupid recall.

A long podcast for you guys, and kind of a rant. Listen to my take on when you take your car to the shop. Listen at work or on a jog. If you have half an hour to kill, listen and let my know what your experience has been. I'd love to read about it in the comments!
An unboxing video of the recently delivered Autel Maxicheck diagnostic scan tool. I will show the machine, demonstrate its scanning capabilities on a Dodge Challenger and Dodge Ram pickup. Do you have ABS, Brake, BAS, ESP lights illuminated in your Dodge? Code C2200 ABS controle module?
When your BMW won't move in any gear and rolls around in Park and gives the tell-tale "grinds when shifting into Park with the engine running" don't jump to the conclusion of the transmission failed. Check under the car and make sure the axle shafts are fully seated into the differential.
Brief tutorial on how to replace front brake pads and front brake pad wear sensor on BMW e46.

Do you have a car A/C system with R12 that needs a recharge? Don't convert it to R134A. Simply get an adapter, buy some R12 and recharge it yourself. R12 molecules are larger than R134A. If you convert R12 to R134A you run the risk of the R134A being able to more easily escape the system via a leak or through the porous hoses. What's more is R134A is more difficult to compress than R12 which will strain a compressor originally designed to compress R12 refrigerant.
I bought three out of these four Taurus G2C's. Sadly one of them came with 2-10 round mags instead of the normal 12-round mags. I reckon the gun shop forgot we live over here in America and not one of those communist States with a magazine capacity limit. The correct 12-rounders have already been ordered and are enroute. Other than that mishap, I have no complaints.

This channel will mostly feature vehicle "how to's" along with occasional dash camera footage reference automobiles. The vehicles that I own are a 1993 Corvette LT1, 2000 BMW 740iL, and 2010 Camaro SS. These vehicles will be the bulk of vehicles featured in the repair videos. Occasionally I work on other people's cars and will feature that content as well.
As bonus content any random things I deem video worthy. Lastly I am always proud of my outstanding marksmanship during my annual and semi-annual qualification at the shooting range for work. Body camera footage of that, and any juicy encounters with criminals will also be uploaded. Enjoy.
