Never used a Foxwell scanner. I either used Torque Pro for generic OBD II readings or used Carsoft 6.5 or BMW Scanner 1.4. for BMW specific trouble codes. Do you have a check engine light on right now.

Based on foxwell pic Looks like there is no communication with DME, or at least several modules. This happened to me on an E39 engine swap. It turned out to be a disconnected ground wire near the DME. I would check your grounds.

In my case the starter would turn, but no fuel pressure.

Interesting you ask about "check engine" light. When I turn the key on, there is no light that comes on. Thought that as odd. Yet, with the Foxwell, you can run a test of all dash lights that happen when you initially start the car. The "service engine soon" light comes on with that test. So, what does that mean? I don't know. But scanned codes are what I have shown. And I can't seem to clear those codes. Just want to nail this down as to what direction to go.

2 things....

1. Is your key in the correct position when using your Foxwell?(I may have done a few attempts with a key in my pocket)

2. If you've had the Foxwell occasionally connect then check your OBD2 block (mine was split)
