86: lower throttle learning function fault

So last night I was messing with inpa and I accidentally cleared my adaptation value

Didn't think much of it cause I've done it many times b4, it ran good last night when the engine was,warm

This morning she was in engine fail safe, after letting it idle it's sick self up to temp I decides to scan cause it wasn't going away , as soon as I cleared ode 86, she ran great.... rocked all the way to work

No problem when I shut it off I had the engine fail safe bong at me... started it back up

Same thing, cleared it ran good ... shut it off same thing fail safe.... I cleared the adaptation from the c310 this time the proper way with turning off the key I think this time it took

I'll wait till it cools off and go out and check again

Do you think it's because last night I cleared it with the lap top and this morning I cleared it with the creator?

The lap top did it live while it was running the crate asked to turn the key off for 30 seconds

When you are resetting adaptations, are you letting the throttle relearn before starting? For me (2003) it is kp2 for 30 seconds but forget what year yours is.

I assume this will not work if the throttle is controlled by wire?

This specific method no, but there is a relearn procedure... can't remember it all but something like KP2, depress gas pedal 3 full times, off. Something like that but I am sure you will run across versions with goats, the moon, and ****** like doing the coooling system bleeding.

up to 2000 528i had a semi fly by wire...throttle cable, was overridden by the DME with the motor in the throttle body when necessary. iirc, the 540 went total fly by wire earlier.
