These come on as a precousionary measures, even if there is a slight misfire in the engine it generates a code which can be read and inform you why it is there, most of the time these are minor things and light can be reset. The only time you need to get seriously worried is when the letters 'eml' light up with the engine light, then you have a serious problem.
Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Might be as simply as a new battery. Remove battery from vehicle and bring it to a repair shop or Sears Auto Center (they are the battery, and charging system Kings) and have them load test the battery. If battery fails purchase a new battery . Once the vehicle is up and running take it back to them and have them test the charging system and determine whether the vehicle has battery drain .

1 Listen for unusual sounds when you try to start the car. No sounds indicates a problem with the ignition. If you hear a clicking sound, the starter is faulty. If the car starts for a moment then shuts off, you may hear a knocking noise. This can be from a faulty fuel injector or the individual components of the system, such as the fuel filter, fuel pump or hoses.
2 Check the fluid levels in your BMW. Little or no fluid can cause your engine to seize up and not be able to start. It can also cause more severe engine damage if it goes on for too long. Checking your fluids can also alert you to any leaks within the engine. Some drivers have reported leaks in the cooling system that can cause overheating problems. There have also been reports of power steering hoses failing and leaking. By checking your coolant and power steering fluid, you can diagnose if they are the problem.
4 Add gas to your tank. Although the BMW 540i has a gas gauge that indicates the fuel level, in some cases the gauge may be faulty. After adding fuel, attempt to start the car again.
5 Note any smells that may be coming from the engine. When your engine was still running, you may have noticed odors, such as a burning or oil smell. This would indicate that the engine is leaking, and fluid is burning off in the engine. Some owners on Repair Pal have reported complaints with the 540i that the valve cover, intake manifold and PCV plate leak oil after 60,000 miles.

Start engine, turn steering full lock to left, then full lock to right. (4WDS should go out). Then drive car ashort distance , switch on and off again.
