Just like a computer...you shut if off and turn it on and everything is ok. It's the ABS/ASC control module btw.

Tiptronic transmission


Sounds like your transmission is bad. You'll need to take it to a shop to have it checked out.

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.

My car is a 2000 bmw 328i sedan E46, with a digitronix gear box. The EML, Check engine and the ASC lights are on, with the EML light its comes on a while and the car felt like shaking and it moves slowly...


get car onto diagnostic machine to find the fault, then you can decide if you want to fix it or get the garage to do it for you....
ive been in the trade for years and with modern cars guesing whats wrong is too costly..computers are good for somethings.....

BMW (e39 1999) eml and asc lights and in limp mode


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

Eml and diagnostic problems


As for the limp mode unless you have an expensive diagnostic system this usually has to be done by BMW (anything to get ya to a dealership!!). The comms problem, is the key turned in the ignition?

Bmw e46 steptronic box, up to 1 minute delay in taking up foward drive in the morning from cold. perfect in reverse, fine for the rest of the day.


How old is the gearbox oil? In some cases, older oil (higher viscosity when old) will be too "thick" in colder weather and inhibit the synchro on your gears from slipping into 1st gear. The reason it only happens in 1st, is 'cause the shifting mechanism on the forward change is finer than that of the reverse change.

POSSIBLE Solution: Replace the gearbox oil with a lower viscosity ie. "thinner" oil.
