Air flow sensor could be a problem.
Every time EML comes on the car computer will put the system into limp mode. To avoid any further damage to the engine.

once switch off, isolated and re-start will re-run the program and clear it temporary.
Ideally you need to get the car plugged in to a Diagnostic computer and see what fault code are stored.

Fist get an owners manual. It will have most of the lights ID'd. Also Haynes manuals are pretty good. You can download them online at . The gold standard is the manual by Bently publishers. I found it helps to have both the Haynes and the Bentley manuals.

They should fix it for you and show you how. But, its rather simple. Just go to settings and set the new limit to a higher value or to "--" to turn off.

Sounds like your battery is weak. BMW's don behave like other cars when the battery is weak. The BMW will prevent the starter from engaging, but leaves power to the interior.

It means "something is wrong". You need to check the messages to find out.

It's actually a message. It will say "Low coolant level" or "Check coolant level" . Hard to miss. Anyway, the sensor is in and part of the coolant reservoir. If the sensor isn't working, you need to replace the reservoir.

Check if happening at specific settings on the fan. Fans use resisters to slow down their speed. Typically the lowest setting will mess up before the highest. If coming a going means you change the speed and it goes away.

If it doesn't matter what speed, there is probably something in your vents. Do you park outside? Mice love getting into warm cars on cold nights, and build nests... a nice comfy place can be in vents...

Or have very small kids... mine used to love putting things in the vents and have them disappear! Could be cherios
