Service Engine Soon Warning Light

The “Service Engine Soon” light on a BMW vehicle indicates a problem with the vehicle’s engine or emissions control system. It can also be an indication of a transmission problem as well especially if the vehicle goes into failsafe (limp) mode. A BMW with a service engine soon light on should be diagnosed as soon as possible to avoid causing further damage to other components. The issue could be something as simple as a loose gas cap or something more complex like a faulty sensor, but it’s important to have it addressed to ensure the proper functioning of the engine and to prevent further damage. Regardless of the cause Ethan's Automotive can find and resolve the issue

Brake System Diagnosis and Repair

The 3 brake system warning lights common on most BMW’s are the anti-lock braking system (ABS) light, the dynamic stability control (DSC) light, and the brake warning light. The illumination of these warning lights on the dashboard indicates a brake system failure. In some cases, this failure can be resolved with a simple fix, such as releasing your parking brake. But for obvious reasons, a malfunctioning brake system is dangerous, and you should take your vehicle to a qualified service professional.
