Scared the crap out of me.
I have an 05 mini Cooper S.
I know my MAP sensor has been going bad so I already have one coming in the mail.
I was driving home a few minutes ago and all of a sudden the CE engine light pops up and my accelerator goes floppy. It put itself into limp mode. Got pulled off the freeway into a Chick-fil-a parking lot and hopped out. Popped the hood and no weird smells, just warm engine.
Looked underneath and nothing leaking actively or fresh. Checked the connectors I had been working with for the last couple of days when working on it. Nothing seemed different.
Hopped in and it started right up nice and strong, got home and I'm gonna check in the morning for any new puddles.
We changed the oil a few days ago with a new filter, new plugs and a valve cover gasket a few days before that.
I think the MAP sensor failed to give signal on the road for a moment and that caused the computer to think "engine has exploded". Can't wait for the new one to show up.
