My Ride: 2000 E46 323ci

Exclamation NEED HELP!!! 2000 e46 is revving out at 2rpm.

e46 is revving out at 2 rpm and i have checked everthing that i can think.

Check list: TPS sensors, MAF, O2 sensors, coils, vaccume lines, battery, and no luck.

Here is some more information about the car.

It was a 2000 323ci with auto in it, but I have swapped out the engine and replaced the auto with a 5-speed. Both from the same 2002 325i. I am still using the original harness from the 323ci. The drive by wire would not work with the original harness so the intake was replaced with the 323ci intake on the 325i engine.

The car iddles perfect but when I go to take it for a test drive around the block it is acting like its hitting the rev limiter at 2rpm.

Thinking it is in limp mode but not totally sure.

This is my 1st BMW and jumped into it head first and have done all the work myself. The rev problem is my last issue with this swap and can not figure it out.

Any ideas on this problem???
