been asked what this dash light means?

12 posts in this topic

From the description, it's the Engine warning light, which means a general engine fault.

Of the three on the bottom right row, the leftmost is the "low coolant" light.

The rightmost, which I think is the one being referred to, is the engine fault light. I had it when a coil pack died in my 330Ci.

To be accurate, though, the handbook actually says this light means CHECK ENGINE. So when it came on, I opened the bonnet and checked the engine. It was still thereā€¦

Nope. Tipex has been the rightest reply so far. That's check engine.

Patently, glad you're not doing rallying with those directions!

I think you've got your left and right mixed up!

Yes, I think I did. I need Satnav even to find my way round the dashboard. :uhoh:

That specific light is definitely the Check Engine light. Make sure it's still there and you'll be fine.

There is that light, and then next to it there is the EML letters too. That could be confusing - so they both light up at the same time?

Are you suffering from something specific? (the car, not you!!)

I only agreeded with Crusier because i thought the other lights where so easy to understand, so yes it check engine which has a 101 meanings. You need to plug an OBC reader to find the error code.
