    My engine block light came on last night and has not gone off yet.....

Hello.

I would advise you get the problem code read at a garage asap, to find out what the problem is, this will also tell you how urgent the repairs need to be done.

My 2000 BMW 323i 2.5 liter car just died, will not start back up. Engine light is on as well as the EML light. Any suggestions on how to fix it and what is wrong?


first verify the basics--fuel and spark. If these are present, then timing. It may be your crankshaft position sensor. A scan would help verify but with the car not starting, you would need someone to bring a scanner to the car...

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

My car is a 2000 bmw 328i sedan E46, with a digitronix gear box. The EML, Check engine and the ASC lights are on, with the EML light its comes on a while and the car felt like shaking and it moves slowly...


get car onto diagnostic machine to find the fault, then you can decide if you want to fix it or get the garage to do it for you....
ive been in the trade for years and with modern cars guesing whats wrong is too costly..computers are good for somethings.....

2000 bmw 323i service engine soon light code =


you can buy a cheap scanner that will put this light out,i have a mechanic working for me that stands on the roof ,tweeks the radio and has one foot on the brake whilst turning on the lights and he puts out nearly every service light you can think of but he wont show anyone least of all me,but if it its a 99 model iam sure you can put the light out by using a 12v electrical screwdriver with the light inside and a cable comes out the end with a clip .then going across the pins on the special BMW connector block it will go out with the resistance of the bulb across it ,but ??big but ?does it have an OBDII connector or the round BMW type because we dont have OBDII on pre 2005 cars here in spain .Now we do and guess what ??its all encrypted software used ...makes me a dinasaur

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

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!
