The check engine light comes on to tell you there is a problem with engine management (computer controls). It has nothing to do with vehicle maintenance.
Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. If the light is on there will be codes. If it is flashing it means the problem is a little more urgent and the catalytic converter could be damaged as a result of the current problem. Typically flashing check engine lights indicate there is a cylinder misfire.
it can mean many things. that light means that something is not right with your engine. i can describe you many reasons why that light is on.
normaly if you get that light you should go to your mechanicien. if your car runs well, it might just be a dump thing like changing the oil, or changing the engine band, or changing the engine ingniters and so on...
sounds like your check engine light is on. On 99ish 3 series the check engine light was an amber engine in the instrument cluster. I thought 5 series actually said service engine soon. If you cycle your key the bulb check should illuminate all lights. see if you have a light that says service engine soon, if not, the amber engine, is the check engine light.
It me Bear001 I believe I found your code Its a, EGR valve Lift insufficiant Detedcted. So Maybe you can take it out and just clean it with a good cleaner and the light should be reset again like we talked about,
I sure hope that help you out and if not let me know I do have an new computer with all the goodies now LOL
