HELP! Screwed up Adaptations *SOLVED*
 
So I was just in the car using INPA to double check that I had no extra codes after I replaced my camshafts with Shrick 264/252's two weeks ago. Besides the two for my disconnected 02 sensors there was nothing else in the system. While the car was running I accidentally and stupidly hit the F7 key to clear adaptations. Now the car won't hold an idle and surges to 2500 and down to 1000 every 2 seconds. I've tried clearing adaptations with the car off, sitting with the car in the run position to relearn throttle position, clearing adaptations, then codes, then sitting in the run position before restarting. I even re-flashed my Epic Tune in hopes that it would help. The car has been running fine for weeks with the Schrick cams and its only now that it seems to be unable to hold an idle. I did not reset adaptations after installing the cams though. I took it for a drive for a few miles and the thing is touchy as hell, you just touch the gas and it lurches forward and it doesn't seem to get better as it drives along.

Anyone who thinks they can help, your input is welcome, I'm at a loss.

Clear Codes and restart...I had issues with clearing adaptation and it would run funn or high idle and etc.

jared_wiesner 10-24-2012 06:27 PM

I've tried that a couple times. Cleared codes restart etc. I almost wonder if it can't deal with the cams in an unlearned state.

How about just driving it and see what happens? Might start learning :D Our cars do strange things...

jared_wiesner 10-24-2012 06:50 PM

Ya I've gone for a 15 minute drive and it didn't seem to improve at all. But that's all I can think of too, I'll clear it all again and go for an hour drive.

TrippinBimmer 10-24-2012 06:58 PM

Do some mix driving....

jared_wiesner 10-24-2012 07:00 PM

Ya other than being super touchy it drives ok until you press the clutch and it tries to idle.... Then it just surges like crazy

Solved!
 
Well driving for a while didn't change anything. I was at the end of my rope and thought of one last thing to try. I went into my Epic Motorsports software and flashed back on my stock OEM BMW tune. The car ran perfectly after this. I went for a drive and everything seemed fine. Came home, flashed back on the Epic Tune, car runs fine again. Somehow clearing adaptations while the engine was running in INPA really screwed up the DME. Maybe it corrupted some locations or something. I had tried re-flashing the Epic tune onto itself but it must have been a value that the Epic tune didn't modify and therefore it needed the full factory tune to re-write it.

Thanks for trying to help TrippinBimmer:thumbup:

Did you ever press the pedal 4 times with the key in accessory? That worked for me once or twice lol.

jared_wiesner 10-25-2012 03:12 PM

Yep, tried that a few times.

alex230ro 10-26-2012 04:16 AM

so ,when we clear adaptions engine must be off,right?good to know :D anyway i've clear mine with engine off,need to do it again ,somehow it cures my M54 30 sec rough idle on startup.

jared_wiesner 10-26-2012 12:44 PM

I would definitely do it with the engine off to be on the safe side. I'm not sure if it got screwed up because I did it with the engine running or if my cable dropped out mid-clear and corrupted data that way. Either way, theres no reason to do it with the engine running, so I would avoid it.
