    Default Throttle body wiring

    This morning the 450 decided to pop up with an engine warning light, still drove ok. Had a good look around the engine, I can see a damaged wire coming from the throttle body connector. If i touch the wires or move them the car goes into limp mode. It looks like a Bosch connector? Ive found one online:


    And the wire/cable


    Do these look right if I was to replace the connector and wiring?

    Its running fine now, just dont want it to cut out on my wife (shes already talking about trading it in, nooooo).

    If you have a damaged wire , why don't you just repair the wire ?

    The wire looks like its been nibbled, looks like another one has been repaired at some point. I cant see a break in the wire itself just part of the insulation is missing. Lift the wiring loom and it goes into limp mode. Rather just replace the lot

    Seriously - you're going to sell the car simply because of a single bit of damaged wiring?
