I have one of those BMWs and they are the most unreliable cars. Too many non-functional badly designed sensors and buggy engine management software that can function without problems for a few month. Mine is 6 years old and the dealer for the last two years could not figure out why I am getting misfire, one time on cylinder 3, another on cylinder 4. They just keep swapping coils, injectors, they even reloaded the engine management software, according to them. I still get it. The dealer just kept in fact just erasing the error but could not really fix the problem. The car also leaked coolant and oil just after the extended warranty expired. If you have one of these cars without warranty, expect to spend $2000 to $3000 every year just to keep it running. My 4Runner did not cost me a penny for 8 continuous years, just basic maintenance but no repairs.
Google BMW misfire or E46 misfire and see for yourself. Man, you will get zillions of results descrbing the problem with no answer. It is all gussing but no real answer to the problem.

What does eml on the dashboard stands for?


"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.

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.

My 2000 BMW 323i 2.5 liter car just died, will not start back up. Engine light is on as well as the EML light. Any suggestions on how to fix it and what is wrong?


first verify the basics--fuel and spark. If these are present, then timing. It may be your crankshaft position sensor. A scan would help verify but with the car not starting, you would need someone to bring a scanner to the car...

These lights are computer readings. When a sensor reading goes bad, it tells the computer, then lights up the dash light. What you need to do is go to your local Advance Auto, or Auto Zone and ask for a computer diaglosic test. They will do it for free. If you have a car that they can not plug in to like a Ferrari, then you should go to your car brand's dealership. A diagnostic test will tell you exactly what sensor is reading trouble and send you down the right path to repair instead of running around.

BMW 1999 318i eml light come on whilst driving. Car drives well but light still on. Any thoughts to why ?


The EML light will come on if you have an emissions fault , the car may drive ok but you may find you are using more fuel , it would be better to get the problem checked just to be on the safe side , regards mark.
