HELP! MY TYPEWRITER IS BROKEN! E. E. CUMMINGS

What model year is your car?

27 = Idle control valve closing coil

Output digital pulse width (active low)

DME final stage will set flag whenever a short to ground, a short to battery voltage or a disconnection
between output transistor and component exists.

I'm sure you can get a Bentley manual through Customs, n'est-ce pas?

1997 528i thanks. I failed to mention that I am scanning through the 20 pin access. looking at the abs system which had a R.F speed sensor problem. but I am left with a code 27 servomotor electrically faulty. (reading now on scanner).
