Shiv quick question

I have installed v2 and double checked that all wires are in the correct place. However, the 1/2 engine light is always on and reduces power. There is no "limp " mode, but the engine is not operating as it should be. I double checked by putting the bypass plugs in and the car runs faster than with v2 installed. Any suggestions?

Yes.. a very good suggestion. Go to our website and fill out a tech callback request so we can call you up tomorrow Posting back and forth on a forum takes a lot more time that quick walk thru on the phone. And yes, it is installed wrong based up on your symptoms

Also there are no error codes with the C reader. I did break one of the spades hooking up 12v power.

The CReader on reads OBD codes, not BMW specific codes like the ones you are getting. I supect the harness isn't getting power but before you do anything else, talk with Dustin or myself tomorrow and we will go over things with you. Just fill out a tech callback request please.
