Don't feel too bad about having to replace your throttle actuator .

I had to replace mine, too, for the same reason.

The throttle actuators on 1993-1995 M104 engines and V12 engines seem to suffer from the deteriorating harnesses.

I would not recommend buying a used one as it will suffer from the same fate.

Just bite the bullet and get a new one.
