Is Your BMW Engine Warning Light On?
The engine management light will turn on within your car dashboard if the vehicle electronics have detected a problem with the engine. It is usually located behind the steering wheel.
Most often, the light operates on a colour-coded basis. A continuous or flashing amber warning light means that your engine is not running as it should be, and your car should be taken to a garage to determine the fault.
A red warning light means that you should stop driving, pull over (when it is safe to do so) and arrange for your car to be recovered to a garage. If you continue to drive with a red light, this could cause expensive damage.
BMW Engine Warning Light
BMWs like the 3 series, the X3 series and the 1 series have many sensors on which monitor how the car is behaving.
When it comes to BMWs, the engine warning light is also called the Engine Management Indicator or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL).
If your engine management light is on, it may also be accompanied with signs that the engine is not working properly, such as jolting when accelerating or a lack of power.
