I know, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make this code go away. The car has plenty of fuel. I'm wondering if the fuel filter is clogged or if the injectors might be clogged.

My car went into limp mode. I read the error p1633. Throttle Valve Adaptation; Limp Home Position (BMW) anyway to find out why it went into limp mode to begin with. thanks.

My Ride: 330i Imola ZHP 6MT
code 2240 330i zhp

my car dropped me a SES. only one code posted as 2240
-O2 sensor positive current circuit/open Bank 2 sensor 1

so with some looking it appears to be the pre-cat O2 getting stupid at only 52K miles.

so the question is: is replacing this sensor the solution? what are the other things that could give the ECU to through this code? intake, coil, injectors?

my symptoms are what feels like misfiring...or stumbling upon accelerartion in 3-6th gears- its a slight stuttering that appears to quiet down or disappear with reduced(minimal) throttle input.

plugs have been replaced

thoughts on solution or problem track down...for this new owner ?>

thanks

This is a great aid. What would be reeeeeeeeeeeeally good would be to have listed against each code the probable causes as a % of probabilty. Bit of an ask I know, but maybe someone has this information?
