Hey guys Im still down . I know a guy with DIS (bmw software) but he wasnt sure if there was a step in the software that Im missing that makes the pedal talk to the throttle. Right now I have the ecudoctors DME, perfect wires and harneses from pedal to DME, DME to throttle body and a new pedal and throttle. Still showing to high of voltage to throttle codes.

Does DIS have a step in it Im missing. I get the initial open/shut on turn of key of the throttle body but no 10 or 30 second initialization process w/ the key seems to do anything.

WELL its fixed, cost me 2600$ to figure it out but to save aeveryone trouble, replace the computer (DME) first then if that doesnt fix it its the MAF as well. That combination worked for me. If you do that itll only cost you 1000$
