SMG Problems.. Any one have similar issues?

Hi everyone!

This happened about two weeks ago. I came to the conclusion of the pump but how could it go out so soon? I didnt notice anything wrong. It went out over night.
I posted on m3 forum. figured i try and see if someone here had the similar problem as me.

Please help!

I don't hear the pump when i unlock the car. It's staying in first gear and NOT going in nuetral. It flashes when in neutral. I drove it the night before. My smg light came on the day before as well. But went away when I turned the car off. Also smg light and service light is on.
Brought it to a indy. They said they cant determine without replacing the pump.




check out this video this is the sound im getting when i had someone try to start the car.

I bought parts for the 6mt conversion but id prefer to see if i can have it fixed

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's the pump. How's your conversion going? Who's going to do your coding?
