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

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

2002 bravada, 118,600 miles steady check engine light came on while driving. outside temp -8 runs smooth

The warning light is telling the driver the computer has a problem with a sensor or component that could affect performance and emissions.
You need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with troubleshooting.

Is your check engine light on? If so, get it scanned. Seems like it would show up on a test. You might have a vaccum leak or faulty fuel injectors

Recurring emission warning light

Hi there, did they run an emissions check? If so what was the outcome?

It could be your catalytic converter has broken down inside and/or blown a hole through it. Does the exhaust note seem louder and brash?

It is not dangerous for driving, but it can be annoying having that light blink at you. Disconnect the negative battery lead for 20 minutes. This should reset the ECU and if the light pops back up then there could be a fault with the CAT sensor or the above fault with the CAT.

I don't think it is a reocurring problem, moreso the ECU is thinking that the emissions are out of sync. Does the car consume gas quickly? Does the car feel sluggish?

Reply back and I hope this might help a little (vote if you think it's helpful)

2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from smooth to rough also sputters and sluggish while driving check engine light is flashing.

have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!
