2000 bmw 528i eml light

I have a 2000 bmw 528i, the eml light came on last night and the car would barely drive. I read other forums and a lot of people changed their throttle body and said it fixed the problem. I put a new one on and it's still doing the same thing. When I plug a code reader into it it says error. Tried 3 different readers and all said error. Can anyone please help point me in the right direction

The first step in diagnosing a problem is to scan the engine computer (DME in BMWspeak) for codes.

Throwing parts at the problem wastes money, doesn’t fix the problem and it angers the BMW goddesses.
