Hi Hammond,It sounds to me as if you have the engine check light illuminating and possibly another for the brake system. I would suggest taking the vehicle for an electronic scan and finding out what faults have been recorded on the on board diagnostic system and have them rectified. Treat the matter urgently as it may be that the brakes are involved! Regards Johngee10

BMW 323i (2000) yellow dashboard light comes on. it looks like an oil light but I'm not sure. also my car started to make this skunky smell. any ideas?

Two issues:

Yellow dashboard light: If the light is shaped like a triangle with an apostrophe, then there is likely an issue with your Automatic Stability Control or Automatic Braking System.

This can also be caused by a wheel speed sensor. It is highly recommended that you take the vehicle to your dealer as this is a safety related issue.

Regarding the "skunky smell" (sulfur dioxide, rotten eggs):
If not related to the in-dash lights, then I suspect the engine is running too rich. Check the oxygen sensor signal to the ECU to determine if it is switching normally. The engine has to run a while to get the catalytic converter hot enough to function properly. If the O2 sensors on either side of the converter is getting a bad signal, then the engine will burn too rich and eventually clog the converter.

Just about any autoparts store can read the problem code for free so just drop by one and let them give you the code, then let us know what you find.

Please let me know if this helps.

2000 bmw 323i service engine soon light code =

you can buy a cheap scanner that will put this light out,i have a mechanic working for me that stands on the roof ,tweeks the radio and has one foot on the brake whilst turning on the lights and he puts out nearly every service light you can think of but he wont show anyone least of all me,but if it its a 99 model iam sure you can put the light out by using a 12v electrical screwdriver with the light inside and a cable comes out the end with a clip .then going across the pins on the special BMW connector block it will go out with the resistance of the bulb across it ,but ??big but ?does it have an OBDII connector or the round BMW type because we dont have OBDII on pre 2005 cars here in spain .Now we do and guess what ??its all encrypted software used ...makes me a dinasaur

Cant read dashborad light

sounds like your brake lining light. It means your brakes have worn below specification. The light to me kinda looks like a yellow circle with two dashes on one side and two on the other and they follow the curvature of the circle. On an x3 you can get a pretty good view of the brake pads looking through the wheel.

you could have one of many faults. It would be dvisable to read the fault memory of your engine mangement unit. sounds like your throttle housung unit is more than likely your fault, but is impossible to know without using a diagnostic computor
