Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
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?
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

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