Default BMW E6X, E8X & MINI R56/55/57/59/60; Non starter, but will crank.

Autologic, fault to fix – BMW E6X, E8X & MINI R56/55/57/59/60; Non starter, but will crank.

This fault will often trigger a EWS anti-tampering fault code message (as well as various other codes) and is usually caused by a flat battery, or if the battery was disconnected for a long time. It can also be stored if the Car Access System (CAS) has been replaced.

Step 1

If the vehicle battery has gone flat or was disconnected for a length of time, it will need to be fully charged.
If the CAS module has been replaced then it will need to be coded. The DME/DDE (engine module) may need to be updated if the integration levels are too far apart.

Step 2

Once the vehicle battery is fully charged, you’ll need to run through a few functions: (a) Go into DRIVE,

(b) Then into CAS,


(d) Then you will need to RESET STARTER INTERLOCK and, if applicable, the DME/EWS alignment must be carried out. You can also reset the CAS module, if necessary.

Step 3

When these steps have been carried out, clear the fault memory down.
Check to see if the EWS tampering fault code has been cleared.
If the fault is cleared you should now be able to start the car.
