SOURCE: daewoo tacuma engine management light

There is sooo many problems with the 1.8ltr engine (2001) ..for example the oil ports in the cylinder head casting are way too small.. this causes clogging and obvious lack of flow and then lack of power due to compression ratio going out the window.. I've re-built quite a wee number of these puppies.. including my wife's own I heartily recommend the below..

This should give immediate effect, but you may also consider the CRANK/FLYWHEEL SENSOR.. It's NOTORIOUS.. Along with the IGNITION COIL PACK.. CONSTANTLY CRACKING HIGH TENSION LEADS..Etc...
Hope this helps someone out there..

SOURCE: reset ecu and engine management light

Ok guys check this out.I ran out of petrol(ok I am a girl!) and the yellow engine light stayed on afterwards.Hyundai said I would have to sell my soul to get it sorted but would be ok to run I t failed it's Mot on emission,but the local garage managed to temporarily fix the problem to get it through.The light came back on after wards-!!! So I did some research on Internet and here's how to reset it yourself-- Take off positive lead from battery,then turn ignition key on to get rid of any stored power.Then pump the footbrake(yeah I wondered why!) for about 20 secs.You will hear allsorts of clicking in the engine as ecu resets.Then reconnect battery lead!! Wallah !!!!
I went armed with this knowledge to the local garage(much to their amusement) and asked if they could reset the ecu,and they said a dealer would have to do it.I said well I know how and asked them to disconnect battery for me(their frowns got deeper by the minute).The rest I did in front of them,They were gobsmacked!!!!
They were amazed and asked me to call in a few days to tell them if it had worked permanent as they had learned something----so far so good!!!!
I f you have a computorised radio make sure you know the reset code for that as it may knock it off.
The ecu resets when you drive away.Now drives like a dream.

Service engine soon light on

The brain is telling you it thinks the engine is due for a service. Mostly this can be ignored if the engine has been serviced but it is reckoned some management systems reduce the power output of the engine if the brain continues thinking it needs a service.

While some service indicators can be reset fairly easily, I seem to remember the BMW needs dedicated diagnostic equipment to reset it.

Please help on how to reset the Engine light for the BMW 320i E90,N46 engine

You will need a scan tool that works on that BMW to clear any warning lights such as a check engine light. Unless you have resolved the problem/ fault that has caused the warning light you are wasting your time clearing it as an unresolved fault that has not been fixed will, once you drive the car again, generate the check engine light again together with a bunch of fault codes that can be read by the scan tool.

Reset management light

If you had all of this work done at the dealership they should have reset the light for you once the service was done. If not, they should reset it for you as a courtesy as you are their customer. It is possible that they did reset it and it is throwing new codes. I would return to the dealer and state your issue and ask them to check/reset the MIL.

To do this yourself, you can jumper pins, but then you don't know what the codes were. I would strongly suggest any owner of an older BMW to purchase a Peak scanner either online or from a BMW parts supply store like Bavarian Auto, Turners, etc. (or find a friend with one!) For a $100 or less you can read your codes and reset oil, airbag, and check engine lights.

Hope this helps,

Will diconnecting the negetive battery post to reset check engine light cause damage to my 2006 bmw 750li

No it wont cause any dammage, all that will happen is the system will reset, although not knowing the circumstances for the reason of the engine managment light being on may not possibly reset it and turn it off, unless what ever caused it has been repaired, most of the time, to reset the engine managment light you will have to get an OBD tool to do this.
hope this helps

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.

BMW 320i se heater not working

Hi Shod, Check the fuses for the heater pump mixing controls and if they are good have a diagnostic scan carried out. The climate control is electronically managed and there may be a problem with that ECU or a sensor. Regards and happy new year, John

You must get the electronic engine control module scanned, when this light is turned on a fault code is stored in the control modules memory.

BMW320 Engine Management Warning Light won't go out

run the fault codes first as the light also reports on transmission problems
just turning a light off doesn't fix the fault that put it on in the first place
