SOURCE: brake warning light is on for 2002 bmw 745i.

The brake pads have sensors in them, when the pads get worn down to the sensor the light comes on letting you know its time to replace. this happens well before the pads are completely gone to reduce wear on the rotors. You should have the brakes replaced and the sensor also.

SOURCE: I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission

The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

SOURCE: asc light comes on and engine cuts out

When your ASC light is on this is to let you know your Automatic Stability Control system is switched off press the ASC button Till light is off /ASC is on this works with your rev limiter and should stabilized your idle. If the problem persists have your throttle control unit checked as thi can trigger the ASC light as well and may also activate the ABS light if not fixed

WHAT DOES EML LIGHT MEAN ON THE DASH OF MY 2003 BMW 325I?


The "EML" warning light in a BMW indicates a problem with the "drive by wire" throttle control system."

"EML" is an acronym for "Elektronische Motorleistungsregelung". Loosely translated from the original German for the BMW owner means Electrionic Engine Power Control.

"EML" is BMW's system name for electronic throttle management. The "EML" system, in it's most basic sense consists of an accelerator pedal (with an electronic position sensor), a computer module (usu. integrated with the main engine computer), and an EDK (Elektronische Drosselklappe or Electronic throttle valve). The EDK is also known as a "drive by wire" throttle. "EDK" throttles use a computer controlled stepper motor rather than a purely mechanical linkage (usu. metal cable attached directly to the accelerator pedal) to control the opening and closing of the throttle plate.

"Drive by wire" throttles are very common on modern vehicles starting in the late nineties up through the present day. "Drive by wire" technology enables very precise throttle control to improve drivability and vehicle emissions, as well as many convenience features like electronic cruise control, traction control & stability control.

BMW first implemented "drive by wire" in very limited quantities on the most expensive & sophistocated BMW models starting in 1988.

The latest generation of advanced vehicle features to take advandage of "drive by wire" technology are radar guided cruise control, accident avoidance control, autonomous-driving, and autonomous-parking systems.

The exhaust emmission light is on in my 2004 bmw 318i and I have had loss of power when driving it?? Waht could be the problem as the light is now off and the local garage cannot find a problem. thanks,...


Hi Angela,
It sounds like it could be a problem with the catalytic converter. If it is this, as well as the continued loss of power you may also notice that the exhaust emissions start to occasionally haves quite a strong and horrible smell.

If your local mechanic has an OBD lead he/she will still be able to plug it into the car and read the fault code from the cars ECU (computer thingy!). You don't need to wait for the light to come on again as the fault code should still be in the memory of CPU.

If your local garage does not have the correct OBD software for your car, you can still go to the stealership, ahem I mean BMW dealership (hehe..!) as reading the fault code is quick and very cheap to do. At least you will know if it the catalytic converter at fault, (I hope it is not as this one can be expensive to replace, sorry). Good Luck Angela.

Battery light comes on while driving with a loss of power?


Have your battery checked to make sure it does not have a bad cell, have your alternator checked to make sure it is putting out a full charge to your battery. Sometimes the ASC light is activated wen there is an engine issue that does not have it's own code.You may also wish to have your parking lamps checked to make sure your lamp connections do not have worn wire covers that may be grounding out.

I may want to get an OBD-2 code reader it does run scans on the emission sensors( fumes capture, evap, ehxaust recirculation....). there are too many things going on at once to really pinpoint the exact problem. I tried.
