Throttle Body Test Question..

Anybody know how to test a pre-flybywire TB? Car is 99 328i 5spd with cable.

I searched and found a thread that discusses it but I think its for a no-cable car. Plus I get different readings. http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...hrottle&page=2

What I'm looking for are the proper ohm readings for the various pin pairs.

Thanks.

I'm not sure exactly what your after, are you wanting to test the sensor consistency/operation of the TB (Potentiometer and ICV)? If those sensors are off in anyway your car will be throwing codes ........

I am getting a Peake code 76 - Motorized Throttle Valve Feedback Plausibility

Yes - want to test the sensor consistency/operation of the TB (Potentiometer and ICV)?

Have removed TB and cleaned it and ICV. Boots were cracked so I am replacing them. I'd like to test the sensors before I put it back in.

Bumpity bump. Any body know what the potentiometer ohm readings should be. Every other car I've worked on had these in the Haynes manual but this one does not.
