Error code

Post by JohnApple » Fri Jul 19, 2019 12:52 am

Hi Jason,

I currently have a 2010 e87 120d. When accelerating really hard the car enters limp mode with the error code being 004CAF DDE control unit.

The car has been remapped by the previous owner from Quantum Tuning showing 210bhp and 420nm.

Would the re-map be causing the issue? And if so would it be possible to have the OEM map put back on?
