I really need the PDR/Wheel Repair day.

I can't find it - not behind glove box, not in trunk on pass. side. I'll call the dealer tomorrow to see where this relay/module is on a 'vert (and p/n). Also, when I tried to actuate the fuel pump via the AE software, the SMG pump would run. However, the SMG pump runs when doors are opened and if actuated via the software. Also, in the live component monitoring, the circuit for the "starter motor blocked due to p/n" is open(?; a couple of other "starter motor blocked..." items are closed? or show green/0), so maybe that is why I can't do any SMG gear selecting to purge (both hood circuits were open/ reacted to hood closing[ red/1]); the SMG has a "clutch actuation dynamics" fault (003B) and a unknown trouble code (0057). I can hear the tranny try to shift and then later release. That AE software is neat, though. Any thoughts? Thanks!
Haven't used AE, but it sounds like hood circuits are working, right?
So it's blocking the starter motor due to P/N, which I would interpret as the car not being in park/neutral. If the SMG is having trouble shifting, then yeah, it might be a problem. Can you get a readout of hydraulic pressure? I've used INPA on an SMG car and it made it really easy to figure out what the problem was exactly. In that case, it turned out all of the readouts would fall to implausible values because the salmon relay was going bad.

Also, the fuel pump relay is behind the rear right trim panel in coupes. Might be the same for verts. This is the panel that's on your right if you're sitting in the backseat.

Well, I drove to 4 clients who happened to be near each other and they weren't too far away.
Move to Norcal and I might make house calls for you, too.

Yes, the hood circuits are working. I can't get a readout of hydraulic pressure, but I know it needs to be bled. A stupid brand new cloth was covering the exposed unit and ended up drawing some fluid out of it before it was buttoned back up. Best methods of purging and allowing it to be in neutral? - I can't actuate the gears one at a time to help in this. Thanks for the relay location; yeah, it's the same for the 'verts (f'in Bentley is still error-filled, not just the e30 version) as I just got confirmation from the dealer. INPA =? BTW, thanks again and I don't mean to threadjack your adventure

Not a problem. I don't mind you asking questions here.
INPA is OEM software.
I guess there's two things I should have asked about. There's the SMG pump hydraulic fluid and then there's the clutch hydraulic fluid (brake fluid), too. The BMW DIS software covers the bleeding procedures (INPA makes the options available, too, IIRC) and I'm sure AE would do the same.

I don't remember unfastening the brake line for the clutch (fluid level never changed), as the clutch slave is driven by the SMG pump, IIRC. So, only the smg fluid needs to be added (I temporarily attached the reservoir to the hose to the pump, with little luck in getting the fluid to flow down/ no change in reservoir level. As appears to be typical with software/HW, there are no bleeding instructions - just some selectable options such as single gear actuations and a couple of clutch options that I can't exactly recall at the moment (learning, slip points?, etc.)

That's right, I forget that the SMG slave runs off that same system.
Here's a great thread on how it works in the different tools: http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=343511
I use DIS (post #8) and INPA (post #9). It looks like you need to bleed the actuator followed by the slave cylinder.

thanks! This helps and I'm asking them to see if I can get some actual bleeding info using the AE software (if possible). Hopefully, I'll have some info before trying to get the car going this weekend after taking last weekend off at JazzFest in New Orleans (blues, rock, zydeco, etc.; Kid Rock was badass).

That sucks. I don't really have much more advice to offer off the top of my head. I find it strange that the selector shaft is moving through the gates, but not into gear.

So when is the new "garage" going to be actually emptied of boxes and setup the way an actual garage is supposed to be?

Anything less than Mclaren's standards and I will be disappoint.
