    IIRC the E46 should have a Mil lamp. Just wanted to check because the E36 doesnt.
    If you know someone with a fault code scanner you can carry out a function test on the MIL lamp itself. Hopefully its something simple like a blown bulb..

    I have the same problem with mine a 99 E46 318i, the bulb is ok, it just does not come on when you turn on the ignition. and it works if you do an active test tru a diagnoistic tool. It just stopped working around 2 yrs ago, not to worried about at the moment.
