: Throttle sensor help!

10-03-2008, 06:42 PM
I've recently been looking into purchasing a 1992 525i. I've been in contact with a private seller and trying to work out a deal. There is however one problem with the car that has me second guessing. Just recently the check engine light has come on and off periodically, and sometimes when you come to a stop the car will turn off. I dont believe it is any engine trouble but most likely a computer issue. He said he believes its a problem with the throttle position sensor but he wasnt positive. Has anyone had a similar problem or know if it is really the throttle position sensor?

Should be an error code that you can retrieve. Do the stomp test or get a code reader. I like carsoft 6.5.
