Unhappy 2004 Z4 EML & Check Engine light

This problem came on my z4 lately. I was due on service and i did not do it on time. I passed 15k mile service and got the service done after 19k miles.

Now in between the EML light and Check engine ligts stay longer then they shld. I saw it on other Z4 of similar years and observer it on mine as well. when u turn the key all the lights on the dash turn amber and then they turn off. this should be the normal behaviour on dash.

Now the EML and Check engine lights stay till i start the bimmer and go off after one or 2 sec in Engine start state.

Can anyone point out what's wrong. i want the EML and check engine light to turn off like other lits when i turn on the ignition.

Hi There!
did you ever find the solution to that issue??

I'm facing the same thing, and it's really killing me to know the reason.

Thanks

Likewise - I never thought that this was an issue until seeing this thread. Would be interested in knowing if I need to be concerned.

I would worry about these lights if they stayed on. If they are going out after you start your car do not worry about them. Good day.
