SOURCE: abs light/traction control light

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

Engine light and traction control light come on and vehicle wont go over 15 mph and stalls when you stop.whats wrong?


It's got you in limp mode. Go to the dealer. The engine is trying to protect itself. Check oils /transmission /Rad fluid. And make sure the emergency break is off. You could try disconnecting the battery for 10 min to clear the fault codes. And restart. If it picks up the code again you know it is a problem that needs immediate attention.

Why does my traction control and eml light come on Bmw e46 ?


I'm sorry Roger but you are going to have to get it to someone with access to the plug in diagnostic unit for Beemers.
there seem to be several things going on but when it coughs up the diagnostic info you may go straight to it?

Engine management light reset


The car is trying to tell you something - limp mode is there to protect the engine if a serious problem is detected. Stop driving it and get someone out to scan the codes and diagnose this.

Sounds to me like the mass airflow meter, cutting in and out. When faulty it can completely shut a car off, and also ingauge limp mode. I hope this helps. Let me know how you get on.
