00' 528I, check engine, EML error (NFG)
Today compounded/polished out all the cat/dog scratchs on the hood & trunk. Came out fantastic. Just like glass. Went further to "investigate" L headlight condensation problem. I believe I found the problem. (gasket seal on top, between lights & lens assy) However, the car now runs like crap & barely made it home at about 2 mph after returning back at couple hundred feet.
I took out the air filter assy & removed the driver headlight assy as directed in my new Bently paper manuals. (I'm a DIY guy with high mechanical skills)
However, something went wrong. I'm getting "check engine" & "EML" error code. I went through both the manuals front to back & nothing showing this error. I'm guessing it's the (MAP?) sensor between the air filter & intake? I'm told they are very sensitive to movement & dropping. As for electrical, nothing else was disconnected. Just the unit between the air filter & intake (guessing MAP sensor?) and headlights. Any input? Speculations?
Damn, this is discouraging....I know I did something wrong, somewhere, just can't figure out where it was.
I'm quite well understanding BMW now with the manuals. However, this one throws me for a loop!? I can't find anything about it. I know it's something stupid & overlooked. (how can remeding a headlight issue cause the car to run like crap!)
I'm sure you guy's delt with this before. I'd appriciate your input to save me a few bucks.
BTW, I already ordered a R5FCX3 today. Should be here in next couple days.
