So there’s the infamous glow on the instrument cluster of your BMW. Yes, it’s your check engine light, and it’s really on. What should you do?
About the Check Engine Light The check engine light is located in the onboard diagnostics (OBD) system in your BMW.
When Your BMW Check Engine Light is On When you notice the check engine light up on your onboard diagnostics system, it means your BMW has discovered a problem within your BMW’s OBD system.

Worn Out Spark Plugs and Wiring
Cracked or Loose Hoses
Emission Control System Malfunction
Issues with Catalytic Convertor
Faulty Fuel Injector
Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor
Faulty Oxygen Sensors

What To Do When Your Check Engine Light Comes On You want to take your BMW to a qualified BMW Technician at Bavarian RennSport independent BMW repair center for a diagnostic test as soon as possible. Our independent BMW repair shop is equipped with BMW ISTA specific diagnostic equipment and we have the BMW specialty tools to perform the work.
The problem might not need to be fixed immediately, but don’t wait too long because if the problem persists, it could be very costly to repair at a later date. Allow our specialists to advise you what needs to be addressed immediately and what can wait.
If you notice other lights on your dash, in addition to the illuminated check engine light, maybe a warning for low oil pressure or that your BMW is overheating, you should pull off the road as soon as you can safely do so and shut off the engine. At this point, to avoid further damage to your vehicle, we do not recommend driving your BMW until it has been thoroughly diagnosed. We can arrange for you to have it towed to our shop by calling (904) 270-9390.
What Happens During a Diagnostic Our factory trained BMW mechanics will be able pinpoint the problem with your BMW by connecting it to our diagnostic scan tool (the same tool used to perform a diagnostic at the dealership). This tool will give us the fault codes stored in your BMW’s electronic control system, and they reveal to us why the check engine light came on to begin with. From there, our BMW mechanics will advise you on what needs to be done next on your BMW.
I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.
Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.
I left the dealership and other local vendors in the area. I won’t be looking back, because of low cost and BMW certified Techs that care about their work. These are the best professionals in town to service your vehicle.
For years my wedding ring has done its job as being the sparkle in my eye until my husband surprised me with a fully built Z4M. Bavarian did an over the top job building me a daily driver that is also great for track days. Now I can race with my husband rather than just watch
You guys do great work and have good prices very much appreciated thank you guys for everything
I must say Bavarian is the best BMW repair shop in Jacksonville. After spending several hundreds of dollars at the BMW Dealership my problem with my vacuum lines kept coming back. The BMW Guys found the issue added a new clamp and solved the problem. These guys know their BMWs.
