Which BMW is it from? Unless you’re going to add turbos then a 1bar sensor is what you need, irrespective if it’s if a BMW, Volvo or Dacia. PWM - Pulse Width Modulation - also known as a 2 wire orsolenoid valve. A stepper motor one (4 wire) needs the corresponding drive circuits in the ECU and that’...

MAP sensor should be fine but I’m not sure about the Idle Speed valve. That one looks like it fits in a specific aperture as well as being a stepped motor type. I think the 3.2 throttles are fly-by-wire (so operate themselves) and the 3.0 ones you’re reusing off your Essex don’t have any feature for...

Otter Switch Fault?

Sounds like you’ve got a Dolomite unit which uses the Tam air lever as a fan switch.
