Your engine management light illuminates on your dashboard if your car's electronics detect a problem with it's engine. The light is usually located behind the steering wheel.
Often the light works on a colour-coded basis and corresponds to the following:
Green - The system is working normally.
Yellow - Something is not working correctly and your car should be taken to a garage to determine the fault.
Red - This indicates a serious and dangerous issue. You should stop driving as soon as it is safe to do so. Arrange recovery for your vehicle to be taken to a garage. Driving further could incur serious damage to the engine.
The latest BMW models including the 3 series, the X3 series and the 1 series have sensors to monitor how the car system is behaving.
Within BMWs, the engine warning light can also be called the Engine Management Indicator or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL).
You may notice that if your engine warning light is on, your engine may not be working properly such as jolting as you accelerate or lack of power.
