Idle issue resolved, MAYBE

I have yet to go on a good test drive, but idle cold and even with me trying to piss it off it stayed rock solid, zero drop.

Ended up having two broke pins in factory DME (stayed in female side)

pics below of my ghetto fix but permanet.

I could easily get to one pin so i removed an unused on and placed in hole did a lil wrap and soldered. the other pin I couldnt get to so went to the back of the board used a wire and solder with some heat shrink for my shielding.

I fix cars daily. From Shitty Chevy trucks to high boosting cars of all types. I did complete vanos rebuilds on two m3's this weekend and mine. My noise didn't go away, theirs did. So I was bitching at my wife how I can fix everyone else's car in a day or less, troubleshooting all sorts of random stuff that nobody should be able to figure out but I cant fix my own damn car. Then i went out later that night and decided to disconnect all my harnesses and bam saw a bunch of corrosion on one plug and looked closer to seewo missing pins, look in plug side and saw them in it. Thing drives like its brand new with that fix and vanos rebuilt.

And no I don't do this kind of work for a living. I manage a diesel engine rebuild shop

Re: Idle issue resolved, MAYBE

I have exactly the same simptoms.
Can you please specify exactly which pins where broken?

I wonder why they breake? Could be from the AEM?

It was where. A factory connector plugged into the Dme. For some reason they were corroded so weakened them. It you unplug them all you should see if anything is broken. But just a loose pin in the jumper will cause sake problems so most likely you have a loose connection somewhere it seems that's always the problem with these symptom, loose or broken pin etc.
