Thread: EML Warning Light

    EML Warning Light

    Had the EML warning light come on twice on my recent road trip about 1,000 miles apart. I dropped off the car at the dealership on Monday and received the following in an e-mail after the read the codes: "I appears that bank 1 & 2 throttle valve sensors are causing the issues and also a couple other recommended services. Hard to believe you’ve hit 100,000 miles with it." I will be about $1,150 to replace the sensors, mainly due to high labor due to the location of the sensors. I will do the other services as well (rear differential and power steering fluid change).

    I have not been able to find much on the web regarding the EML light - not even on the M5 board http://www.m5board.com . Just a few comments with varying end results. Has any of you had this light come on?
