Sometimes, your car's sensors will detect a problem with the engine, causing an engine management light to come on. This usually happens on the dashboard or steering wheel.
The light on most cars is coloured either green or orange to indicate the engine's operating state. For example, if the light is green then the system is in use and working correctly, but if it's orange then this means there may be a fault.
Yellow: The engine needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. Something doesn't seem right and if it isn't addressed the issue will only worsen over time.
Red: We are sorry to inform you that there is a serious issue with your vehicle. You should stop driving right away to prevent any additional damage and contact us as soon as possible.
The latest BMW models like the X3 series, 3 series and 1 series contain a number of sensors that track all of the car's systems and provide data to be analysed.
The BMW engine warning light may also be called the Engine Management Indicator, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), If this is illuminated and there are some signs that the engine isn't working, such as a lack of power or unusual noises, this often means that you may need to book your vehicle in as soon as possible with one of our specialists here at South Coast Garage.
