    had the engine symbol light on for 2 weeks now, getting codes checked under warranty in an hour, do they go off by themselves if its dirty bit of fuel or something trivial?

    had it just over a month ago and that was worse as straight away it was coil pack, are they touchy on bmws? is the engine looking symbol the actual eml or is it the lettering that lights up next to it as well?

    if it's still under warranty can't you get them to resolve it under warranty?

    The engine picture is to do with the emissions and the words eml are an engine management fault if your engine is an n42 you would have two lambda sensors, I'd just ring the warranty people and say i want this fixed as you identified it during the warranty period

    i have the n46 engine, the 2 mine could of been were n45 or n46 and i have the latter.
    i spoke to the dealer today as i do know him and have for about 20 years but not close, just through football and a previous purchase, i put forward that i maybe feeling a little fobbed off and was not overall happy with it just being erased but as my warranty runs out on the 20th jan and its a possible fault known to be there that we needed an arrangement, he therefore said that if its back on within 2-3 weeks of end of warranty he will sort it for me!

    just to clarify that the wording on the dash EML illuminates with engine fault and the engine symbol is emission's, thanks for that
