Engine management system ( EML )

What's up people . Have 2000 528i and the EML light keeps coming on and won't let me go pass 60 mph . Is there anyway to bypass or disconnect

Is there a separate fuse or relay for the front and back doors

No. You need to scan the codes and find out what's causing the problem.

The front and rear doors are controlled by different modules.

EML = electronic motor load regulation. This is, AFAIK, a 7-series device, which appears to be like the so-called "drive-by-wire" control of the E39. The M52TU engine does not have an electronic throttle.

How did you discern that this was the problem?
