Hi, I've not been able to register my own account as I would need to use the same email address as my son, who is already on the forum.
I'll sort out another email account, but for now as always with new members, I've got a question.
I've just bought a 2001 BMW 520iSE and I'll give it a service and proper check over next week, but as I don't have a proper handbook I wondered if anyone could confirm something for me?
Yesterday, my wife called to say that a yellow engine shaped light was staying on. Later that day, it cleared. I assumed it was an engine management light as she said it seemed to be a bit lumpy in the lower gears.
I downloaded a pdf handbook, but it is for the US version 525, 530 and 540. Should be the same, but within this pdf, the yellow engine light simply means that a service is due? This is only on Canadian models it says.
Is it just a service reminder light on BMW's? On my Scenic, a similar light is a Toxic Fume warning light.
Looking forward to joining the forum properly, it seems a good one.
