I'd be interested to know if this is the same process for the e89, has anyone tried it? I've had a quick look for mention in other threads but haven't found anything yet.

Try this:

"1. Put key in the ignition
2. Click on the Start button without having your foot on the accelerator. At this point the lights on the dash will all light up.
3. Push the accelerator to the floor and hold it for about 30 seconds. For me at about 20 seconds I heard a very faint sound. This is the reset sound. Don't worry if you don't hear it. Just keep your foot on the pedal for about 30 seconds.

That's it. Now start the car and test it out.
Why is it that people who can't take advice always insist on giving it?

I assume disconnecting the battery turns off the radio... either that or you have a very special radio :poke: ;)

Digging up an old thread here but prefer to do this than create duplicate threads.
When resetting the throttle, is there a confirmation sound/notification to let you know it's been registered? I'm going to try this tonight :D
