    I have a 1996 328is with a similar issue. Under harder acceleration, it will occasionally misfire and turn on the check engine light. While the light is on, the car will have reduced power and will shudder under any kind of acceleration. The light will often shut off on its own after a while (10-50 miles), and the engine will return to normal.

    I think it the computer is detecting a misfire and retarding the timing or shutting down the affected cylinders to avoid damaging the catalytic converters.

    The problem got slightly better when I replaced the fuel filter, so I suspect I might have a fuel issue. However, it could also be a spark plug or ignition coil issue. I will check/replace those soon.

Sometimes you can reset the engine warning light by disconnecting the battery for ten minutes or more (be sure you have your stereo unlock code if needed).
That is not a good solution, it is better to diagnose and eventually fix the problem.
Have the car computer scanned with a code reader, the codes you get in return witll tell you exactly where to find the problem.

Here is the code list.

To get the codes the code reader must be connected to the car computer.

sometimes on Bmw you may need a Interface 16 pin Adapter, depending on the code reader.

Here is a home user code reader : PocketScan™ OBD II Code Reader (AXRCP9125 ...

Here is a good scaner.

Always better having the job done at a qualified garage.

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 don't know what year you own but on the 1999 BMW 328i it is inside the glove box. up on top, there are two white tabs that must be turned and the top will flip down reveiling the fuses.

Eml and diagnostic problems

As for the limp mode unless you have an expensive diagnostic system this usually has to be done by BMW (anything to get ya to a dealership!!). The comms problem, is the key turned in the ignition?

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
