    Hi guys im new to this site! and in desperate need off advice before i call the salesman who sold me my car today, its a 316 i se on an x plate (2000).

    I went to the garage to test drive it mon and the eml came on and stayed on, i questioned him on this and he said he would get it to the garage and get back to to me, he called me saying the sensor had gone on it and he would get it fixed and that i could pick up the car today, great!

    Picked it up today drove the 40 miles home and everything appeared fine, just went back out in it and 3miles down the road the eml came on and stayed on, was just looking for advise as from prev experience being a girly mechanics and sales men try to take the mick

    Also if i switch the back windscreen heater on the battery light appears and then disappears when i switch it off..

    MY god i hope i havent been stitched up im gutted at the moe any ideas or advise would be fantastic

    If you brought it in the trade take it back and get them to sort it. I belive now that even if the trader says no warranty there is still a time period that they have to cover the car (3 months i belive).

    well if they did then presumably it would break again within 3 months and they would have to fix it again!
