You bought a theft recovery car you knew nothing about, and now it has problems? Take it to the dealer.

The reason why I ask about the tune is because the car might be in transport mode.

I know you can access the JB4 console by pressing at the same time volume down and tune down. If your tacho goes crazy, and the small screen goes blank then you have a JB4 I'm not sure how to access the procede console...

oh btw, when you said there is no codes did you check it with a tool? or on did you check control on the dash?

well when i bought the car i took the cabin filter out and the cowl to see if it had a jb. i had jb3 on my 135i before. not familiar with jb4, but i would guess it hooks up just like jb3? and yes i scanned it with a tool.

TRansport mode cuts off boost and limits the rpm to 4000

check the first post, scroll down there is a spreadsheet that tells howt o do it on a JB4. If you don;t have a JB4 I don't know.


You ahven't told where you checked for codes? or how

Could be anything, but if is your car's hardware it should throw codes.

You can check the vacuum lines for anything obvious.

just check all the lines, everything seems to be in good condition. but the Charge air induction tract (part number 11657556551) has some oil/dirt where the two tubes separate.
