We are a small team founded 3 years ago, when my BMW e63 electronic steering wheel lock (ELV) fault problem started. Of course, the dealer wants to replace the complete steering column right away. I think you know how much that costs. That's absolutely not reasonable.
At this point we started to search the solution. After some research we stated that it is a common fault in BMWs & MINIs manufactured between 2004-2008. Maybe BMW engineers also recognised the problems with these modules. As a consequence BMW factory has stopped further installation of this modules in model year 2009 and onwards.
However they has not provided any solution to BMW & Mini owners whose cars are already equipped with this faulty modul. No factory recall and no any help at all.
At this point we stated: If BMW factory has stopped installation of this modules from 2009, we can do it too. But if you simply unplug ELV module from car, it will no start no crank at all. At this moment the idea of an ELV emulator born and the development started.
If you are in the same situation, you are at the right place. We have already developed this device with a lot of work and much more testing. This story was a success finally. We solved the problem perfectly and now we can help you too.
