Question about 1998 BMW 7 Series
All cars marketed in the U.S. in the year 1996 and later have to have a standard OBD-II connector inside the car under the dash on the driver's side.
With an OBD-II Scanner one can scan the codes that are indicating trouble in the engine.
After repairs are made, the light can be turned off by pressing the 'erase code' button on the scanner.
If one is experiencing an intermitent code, the code may be turned off with the 'erase code' button on the scanner to temporarily turn the check engine light off, until circumstances make the light turn back on.

engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some
error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer
needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the
further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light
indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer
noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon or small picture of an engine) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.
