    Throttle problem

    Evenigng all,

    I need of some of that wisdom from the gurus ont he forum.

    Over the last few days my 320ci has been haviong a little issue, and today it got a lot worse.

    The car will suddenly go into limp mode after a minute of 2 of running. I used to be able to switch the car off and it would run fine but now its not happening. Thid brings up EML light, and puts it into limp mode switching off the DSC too!

    The fault codes showing are:

    118 Throttle Valve 1, versus air mass signal
    119 Throttle valve 2, versus air mass signal
    160 Throttle actuator blocked momentarily
    161 Throttle actuator blocked continuous

    On clearing the codes:

    118 Throttle valave 1, versus air mass signal remains and will not clear.

    I briefly checked the car over, no air leaks loose connections etc so i guess the throttle body has gone up the swanny? They are all in one units arent they?

    Any advice greatly appareciated, as im going to have to order one tomororw i think.

    Many thanks

    Lloyd

    Evening guys,

    Changed the throttle body out last week and the car is sweet as now, please can a mod close this to fixed if poss?
    If anyone gets any similar symptyoms id suggest looking at a replacment unit. ECP is identical to a genuine unit, and nearly 70 less!

    Cheers
