kluesner325is is an unknown quantity at this point
I took my 1992 325is through a automatic car wash yesterday and when I pulled out my check engine light came on and it stays on. I was wandering if the water could have damaged any sensors? Please help!

You probably damaged the ECU. Automatic car washes dump more water near the firewall than the drains can handle, and its not uncommon for the ECU to short out becuase of water damage.

Have it checked out ASAP.
