Need BMW coder reader in Hamilton

3 posts in this topic

My 1999 523i wagon goes into limp mode as soon as I try to drive it away.  It's idles fine after startup.  The only code on the OBD2 is 505, ICV.  I've had the intake apart and cleaned things and fixed some vacuum leaks but no luck.  I think it would be nice to see the real codes from the BMW computer.  Can anyone loan me a reader?

 

Thanks

For anyone who might have a similar problem... I replaced the throttle body with a used one (from pick-a-part) and that fixed it.
