Unhappy EML

SOMEBODY HELP! My EML lights up when I start my car, but goes away while driving. Is that bad? Do I need the EML to work for the car to work properly? so confused!

Might need new Coils or could be a TPS sensor. I think it is coils but that is my 2 cents.

EML

[color="Blue"]"EML" is BMW's system name for electronic throttle management. The "EML" system, in it's most basic sense consists of an accelerator pedal (with an electronic position sensor), a computer module (usu. integrated with the main engine computer), and an EDK (Elektronische Drosselklappe or Electronic throttle valve). The EDK is also known as a "drive by wire" throttle. "EDK" throttles use a computer controlled stepper motor rather than a purely mechanical linkage (usu. metal cable attached directly to the accelerator pedal) to control the opening and closing of the throttle plate.

Thanks for the info! I would say that would be pretty integral to driving.
