SOURCE: EML light went on. What is this?

Engine Management Light, same as a Check Engine Light... simply means a sensor component on your vehicle is malfunctioning You'll need to have someone with a tester to run diagnostics and retrieve codes to find exactly what the culprit is. Don't be surprised if it's the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS), common problem on BMWs

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

Check the ABS brake sensors in your wheels, if they are not functioning properly. It will trigger the computer to engage the ASC auto stability control light as the asc uses the brakes to assist in control. I will also engage the EML engine management light to slow the rev point to limp mode

What is wrong with my 2015 Ford Kuta diesel?


Way to many things to guess at on these. Best to have the codes read. Most every thing on the engine and transmission will cause it to go to reduced power. Then start turn on other s lights, like stability.

What is warning light on arrow pointing down wiggly on the bottom on?


What make/model/year of car. On cars that have the automatic stabilizing/handling sensors systems for people that over-drive in poor road conditions (rain, ice etc) and the car starts to go out of control. Believe it's called an ECS (electronic control system). If there is a problem in this system that little wiggly arrow might be the warning light. Best advice is to get a Chilton/Haynes repair manual that covers your car. These warning lights are covered in these manual. If you have the owners manual it should be in there as well.

Eml light warning is on and the 2006 Mini Cooper S lost power, the car also had a misfire (P0303) . I replaced the spark plugs, wires and coil pack. Problem still here,


misfires are also caused by low fuel pressure injector electronics faults and faulty injector tips . Replacing plugs is half the fix

VW BEETLE , ASR LIGHT IS ON , AT SAME TIME THERE SEEMS TO BE A GROANING WHEEL BEARING NOISE AT LOW SPEED , COULD THIS BE CONNECTED ? WHAT IS ASR??


First of all replace bad wheel bearing !!! This bad wheel bearing causes ASR light ON.

ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.


For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

tdisline_672.jpg


ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.

The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

My 2001 Saturn L200 service light with the wrench keeps coming on. If I drive about 100 miles and park the car when I return to start it that is when the light comes on not while driving. I can not get the...


Service (Wrench) System Check The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale is turned ON by the cluster when it receives a command from the powertrain control module (PCM) or the body control module (BCM). The PCM or BCM will turn the SERVICE (Wrench) telltale ON for all non-emission related diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) that require that a telltale be turned ON, some DTCs do not turn ON a telltale but are stored to aid in diagnosis.
The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale will also be turned ON if the Antilock Brake System (ABS) control module has detected a fault in its own warning indicator system. If the ABS cannot turn ON its own telltale, a message will be sent to the BCM through the Key Word 2000 data bus to turn ON the SERVICE (Wrench) telltale.
The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale will be turned ON by the cluster for 2-3 seconds, when the ignition is turned to RUN, for a visual system check.

You need to have codes checked .

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.

1999 saturn light with a wrench is on. Disconnected batt. But that didn't work


Hello. this is a warning indicator. this light is on because there is either a problem with the engine control system, or even possiblity the abs unit. you will need to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes to see why this light is coming on.

The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale is pulled to ground by the powertrain control module (PCM). When the lamp is pulled to ground, current from the ignition circuit flows through the indicator lamp, allowing it to come ON. The PCM will turn the SERVICE (Wrench) telltale ON for all non-emission related DTCs that require that a telltale be turned ON (some DTCs do not turn on a telltale but are stored to aid in diagnosis).
The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale will also be turned ON if the ABS control module has detected a fault in its own warning indicator system. If the ABS system cannot turn on its own telltale, a message will be sent to the PCM through the class 2 data bus (circuit 1807) to turn on the SERVICE (Wrench) telltale.
The SERVICE (Wrench) telltale will be turned ON for 2-3 seconds when the ignition is turned to RUN for a bulb test.

What causes a toyota highlander VCS warning


When your VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) light comes on, it means your car has been forced to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation. For example, if you're driving on an icy or wet, slippery road, and take a turn too sharp or accelerate too quickly, the vehicle will automatically reduce acceleration or apply pressure to the brakes to prevent the car from losing control. In this situation the VSC indicator light will light up to alert you that the action was taken, and remind you to slow down - or to be extra careful. Be safe!
