Hi there:

Anytime an error is detected it stores a trouble code in the ECU which illuminates the check engine light on your BMW. In order to determine what’s causing issues, or causing the check engine light to illuminate, you’ll need to contact a professional mobile mechanic to complete a check engine light is on inspection. Once they download all codes, they’ll have a good indication as to what’s damaged so they can make the right repairs.
