    Hi there guys i have a bmw 318se touring and have had all manner of things changed too stop the engine light coming on below is a list.
    lamda sensors.
    new cat.
    crank and cam sensors.
    After much money spending the light still appears after 50 or so miles with a mixter adaptation error (to which the mechanic says that the onbord computer has too learn too adapt the mixture, The light has come on three times since then. have i a dislexic computer lol). and is now starting to do strange things with the electrics at certain point ie when first started the radio cuts power for 2/3 secs and the traction control light seatbelt warning and air bag flick on and off at the same time no loss in power is it a short any ideas on both problems would help cheers ?

    Ah a quicker computer we are always striving for that lol.
    earth strap is a new one expensive ? i did replace a cigerette lighter fuse a week ago but checked yesterday if all the fuses where in properly the fuse went because my wife dropped a metal recharger part into the lighter then the actual lighter on top cased a short and a bit off smoke from the lighter itself works fine now though (this might be the cause ?) any ideas on the first problem with eml?.
