Anyone out there using a BMW V12 (M70) with the stock EMS and been successful getting the "check engine" light to go out? Mine starts easily and revs freely but the "check engine" light never goes out. It flickers some, but is mostly shining steadily. I've read where a number of guys have given up and converted over to an aftermarket system but I'm hoping there are some who have stuck with the stock system and overcome this issue. Anyone?
Thanks.

Adrian - I'm not sure that he did. I seem to remember that the reason he put in the Haltech system was because the guy he sold the car to didn't like having the check engine light on. So he spent over $2000 for the Haltech. If I'm wrong, maybe Jim will chime in.

Hi Daywilm have you tried a stomp test to see if you got any codes, i also seem to remember reading that the CE lights are special bulbs, you cant fit a standard dash type bulb have you had a dig around this site http://twrite.org/shogunnew/diagnosis/M70faultTree.html#

I don't have the original dash pod hooked up so can't do a stomp test. However, I have a Peake Research code reader for BMW's and it shows no codes on either bank. You may be right about the special bulbs. I'll take a look at the link you provided and see if it gives me any clues. Thanks for the reply.

I ran it with normal 194 bulbs in the dash. The Check Eng light would come on once in a while for no apparent reason. The guy that bought it wanted that to stop. Thats why I installed the the Haltech and yes, it was about $2k.
