Hey guys -- simply turned on mine E46 330i this morning and it wasn't to run well. It looks to it is in in limp setting (won't go above 45) and the accelerator is inconsistent.

You are watching: What is eml light on bmw

Unfortunately, the nearest BMW dealership is 4 hours far and every one of the significant car repair shops in city refuse to work on BMW's (seriously, I've tried.)

The weather roughly here turned an extremely cold very quickly and I'm wonder if it added to everything caused the issue.

I believed I'd asking you males what would reason the EML irradiate to come on, and also if there's a rapid fix that doesn't call for tearing personally the engine bay. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I had actually the same issue (EML+limp mode), especially in the cold. My problem was a TPS (throttle position sensor). When it would certainly go, I would certainly pull over, close up door the vehicle off, and also wait for 10-20 secs before transforming it earlier on and also continuing on my means (the EML would go away). I replaced the TPS above my oil filter and also that resolved the issue. Check approximately on e46-related forums since they'd have more information on the issue, as I'm not sure what the difference in between my TPS and also yours might be.

a negative relay to the ECU will additionally trigger this, however you'll know due to the fact that your automobile won't start.I, too, had a TPS sensor go out (the one in front, beside oil filter) and it was a quick/painless fix. Best of luck

Throttle body. Or the wiring come it. I believe there to be a bulletin a while earlier on the exploit to the throttle body.

I recognize this is going come seem like a harsh fact thing, but why on planet would you very own a BMW without having someone closer than 4 hours far if you require help? BMW's, as trustworthy as they deserve to be, room not the sort of car you want to own provided your situation. Because the SES and also EML lights room on, and the limp mode that girlfriend described also exists, you could be looking at a transmission issue.
