bmw DBW throttle pinout


Recommended Posts


We don't have any information for this e-throttle. Do you have a wiring diagram? Looking at photos it looks to be a single throttle controlling only one plate, so similar to most e-throttle bodies out there. The wiring on most of these is pretty similar.

the M50 does not have the same pinout , unfortunately 540 DBW come with 2 types of VDO module both have different pinout , the best practice is to open the throttle black cover and you can easily trace the pinout wiring , as you will have 2 pins for the motor and you can easily see the traces for the 2 TPS  with shared 5V and 0V , and dont worry if you swap the 5V over the 0V as you will eventually calibrate the throttle in the software , as for the motor to determine the 12V and 0V orentiation you will have to bench test them to see which way open the throttle as the wrong way will close it 


Best regards
