Hello and welcome,
My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
what question specifically would you like answered about the eml light?
Ask Your Own BMW Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
How do I get it off? I bought a code reader from bravarian autosport, but the reader will not work correctly with my car.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Even after the rep specifically told me the reader would reset all codes, mind you...
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 3 years ago
so no diagnostics have been carried out? you don't know what faults are logged in the computer?
why was a cam sensor replaced?
Ask Your Own BMW Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I took it to a mechanic (who works as a mechanic) when the check engine light came on, and he said cam sensors after putting a code reader on it.. I replaced both the intake and exhaust cam sensors with BMW parts.. It finally wouldn't start at all and the EML light came on.
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 3 years ago
so the car does not even actually start?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Sir, imo, you are no expert, and I have been scammed?
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 3 years ago
I am sorry but at no point was it made clear that the car did not start, the only information provided was that the eml light was on. Asking to clarify this point does not call into question my expertise in any way.
I am going to opt out of your question, perhaps another expert will be able to help.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Opt out? I just paid $36. I will report.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I paid money. You did not answer the question. Refund my money.
