I'm thinking I may have a similar problem because my light came on last week and I've been smelling a bit of gas from the exhaust. This may be a dumb question, but is there any easy way to get the fault codes from the E39 without a tool? Like on the E34 for example, you put the key in aux position and then stomp on the pedal five times and it will blink the code at you. Is there a trick like that for the E39?
