The engine management light is a symbol which illuminates on your car's dashboard. It is located usually behind the steering wheel. It appears when the car's electronics detect there is a problem with the engine.
In many cases, the light operates on a colour-coded basis. A flashing or continuous amber warning light means that the engine is not running correctly and should be taken to a garage to determine the fault.
A red warning light suggests you should pull over when it is safe to do so and arrange for your car to be recovered to a garage. Driving further with a red light could cause expensive damage.
BMWs including the 3 series, the X3 series and the 1 series are complete with many sensors which monitor how the car systems are behaving.
On BMWs, the engine warning light can also be called the Engine Management Indicator or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL).
If you engine warning light is on, it may be accompanied with signs that the engine is not working properly such as lack of power or jolting as you press the accelerator.
