WHY DOES MY ENGINE CUT OUT WHEN AIRFLOW METER IS CONNECTED?

1999 BMW E46 • 100,000 miles

My BMW is currently running with no airflow meter because as soon as it is connected the engine will start but cuts out immediately. I have bought a second hand replacement airflow meter to see if this would fix the problem but unfortunately it hasn't. I have taken my car to an auto electrician who has put it on the diagnostics computer but he can't seem to find a problem. Please can you offer me any ideas as to how I may solve this problem?

Air tube between airflow meter and the throttle body is cracked/leaking

Have the airflow meter wiring checked for a short and open circuit back to the computer if okay -have the
