Easy No CEL after Manual Swap

I thought this whole time that DIS and Progman were requried to get rid of the check engine lights related to removing the manual transmission. Turns out its much easier than that.

I will give credit to russiamutha on ZHPMafia for PMing me this info, as well as e90Unicorn who I believe was trying to PM me the same information on here.

All you need to do is unplug the transmission computer in the engine bay, then reset the DME adaptations and resync the DME-EWS. I did the adaptations with INPA and the EWS sync with PA Soft. Then do a full battery pull in the trunk for one minute. No CEL after several restarts and a little drive. This means that all coding for a manual swap can be done with INPA/NCS, and PA Soft. I do not think that has been stated before.

Yep. Sure do. It's just when I go to f4 error and then f7 it's lists a few options. I just need to know if I clear them all or just a spicific one?
Also, can you use inpa to sync instead of pasoft? I have ncs expert, Dummy and Inpa.

Oh, and do you need to disconnect the wire that you install to the ews as well as the transmission module?

Youre not clearing errors, youre resetting adaptations. And no the EWS wire stays in

Great saving this, I already ordered my Clutch kit, driveshaft and 5spd transmission and will be getting the rest of the swap from my other car, I was looking forward to coding it, but if this works it will do for me. Thanks for the info.
