You need to have someone very experienced with these cars look at it and give you a price on the repair.I am sure there is a european repair facility that has been in business for several years close to you.Whoever told you you needed a "valvetronic" would have given you a price on the parts and labor to install if they knew what they were talking about.Do not let someone guess at what is wrong , parts for this car are expensive and a good diagnostic will well worth the money.Sometimes mechanics will say you need a part that they dont install to get you to leave so they dont have to admit they have not got a clue what is wrong.Any professional will supply the diagnostic , the labor , the parts and a warranty on all .If someone sugests any other way I would be suspitious.Good luck! Let me know if I can help you find a shop.

Engine management light reset


The car is trying to tell you something - limp mode is there to protect the engine if a serious problem is detected. Stop driving it and get someone out to scan the codes and diagnose this.

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 light.. loss of power


Hi
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.

Thanks

1997 isuzu wizard mu check light


Code 24 is a vehicle speed signal sensor fault, the sensor most likely does not provide a useable signal until about 25 MPH, when the computer doesn't see any signal after that speed it turns on the light. Make sense?
