1999 323i BMW

I just purchased a 1999 323i yesterday. When i was driving it today it suddenly had no acceleration, the EML light came on, and a light that has a triangle with an ! and a circle in the middle came on. Any suggestions as to what the problem could be? I have a 1999 323i yesterday. When i was driving it today it suddenly had no acceleration, the EML light came on, and a light that has a triangle with an ! and a circle in the middle came on. Would anyone know what this could be?

    Same problem here. As I drive the EML light and Traction COntrol light comes on then then I lose accelleration. I can only drive around 49mph at first and now I cant go over 3mph. I pull over, shut the car completely off, wait for approx. 10sec, and then restart the car. No lights and car drives fine until it happens again within 2 miles of driving. Diag results show -27degrees for coolant temp which is wrong and car is starting to overheat. What can I do?

You could have one of many faults. It would be dvisable to read the fault memory of your engine mangement unit. sounds like your throttle housung unit is more than likely your fault, but is impossible to know without using a diagnostic computor

BMW car accelerating failures


The fault reason appears in the instrument panel or internal damage EML control module. EML system has self diagnosis function, also has the failure protection function, when the EML system failure, it can transmit the signal to the engine control module, common control solar term door position motor, maintain solar term door opening to suppress the rotation speed of the engine, so the fault that caused the engine speed can't go up. Use obd2 for automotive diagnostics , you can improve vehicle safety performance and driving more safer.

What does eml on the dashboard stands for?


"EML" is BMW's system name for electronic throttle management. The "EML" system, in it's most basic sense consists of an accelerator pedal (with an electronic position sensor), a computer module (usu. integrated with the main engine computer), and an EDK (Elektronische Drosselklappe or Electronic throttle valve). The EDK is also known as a "drive by wire" throttle. "EDK" throttles use a computer controlled stepper motor rather than a purely mechanical linkage (usu. metal cable attached directly to the accelerator pedal) to control the opening and closing of the throttle plate.

WHAT DOES EML LIGHT MEAN ON THE DASH OF MY 2003 BMW 325I?


The "EML" warning light in a BMW indicates a problem with the "drive by wire" throttle control system."

"EML" is an acronym for "Elektronische Motorleistungsregelung". Loosely translated from the original German for the BMW owner means Electrionic Engine Power Control.

"EML" is BMW's system name for electronic throttle management. The "EML" system, in it's most basic sense consists of an accelerator pedal (with an electronic position sensor), a computer module (usu. integrated with the main engine computer), and an EDK (Elektronische Drosselklappe or Electronic throttle valve). The EDK is also known as a "drive by wire" throttle. "EDK" throttles use a computer controlled stepper motor rather than a purely mechanical linkage (usu. metal cable attached directly to the accelerator pedal) to control the opening and closing of the throttle plate.

"Drive by wire" throttles are very common on modern vehicles starting in the late nineties up through the present day. "Drive by wire" technology enables very precise throttle control to improve drivability and vehicle emissions, as well as many convenience features like electronic cruise control, traction control & stability control.

BMW first implemented "drive by wire" in very limited quantities on the most expensive & sophistocated BMW models starting in 1988.

The latest generation of advanced vehicle features to take advandage of "drive by wire" technology are radar guided cruise control, accident avoidance control, autonomous-driving, and autonomous-parking systems.

EML light coming on intermittantly


It's not an old scool cars anymore.
No advise is possible untill you take it to workshop and let them scan it , I'm sure ECU stored all information and fault codes.

BMW (e39 1999) eml and asc lights and in limp mode


Check the ABS brake sensors in your wheels, if they are not functioning properly. It will trigger the computer to engage the ASC auto stability control light as the asc uses the brakes to assist in control. I will also engage the EML engine management light to slow the rev point to limp mode

BMW 1999 318i eml light come on whilst driving. Car drives well but light still on. Any thoughts to why ?


The EML light will come on if you have an emissions fault , the car may drive ok but you may find you are using more fuel , it would be better to get the problem checked just to be on the safe side , regards mark.

I finally fixed this problem!  Not sure if it will work for everyone but it did for me.  My new mechanic said there is an electronic 10 pin connector hooked up to the throttle body and mine had 2-3 pins that weren't making a good connection....THAT'S IT!
