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?
