Just curious? Did the DME completely fail, or just throwing codes?

I really don't understand what you are trying to describe? Did you get a list of codes to pinpoint the problem?

Throttle position sensor is a common failure item on BMWs in general. I would change that first. A new DME is big $.

Someone just posted the TIS for the TPS's about three posts down. I think the title is Throttle Position Sensor.
