Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your thread over to the E36 3 series forum (your 3 series chassis code). You should be able to get answers to your questions in this forum. Also search this forum for info, this problem has probably been discussed before.

Good luck,
Tim

well, welcome to the fest. we're a bunch of enthusiests who will try to help, but we always suggest searching the topic first (search button under sponsor links @ upper right of screen).

we also like to suggest reading the stickies at the top of the forum. lots of info there, and it's not all going to be done at once. but it is a good source of info.

as far as the concern, are you having a concern with the obc (on board computer) where the time/temp/ and such is displayed by the radio, or are you talking about the dme (engine control module) that would turn the check engine light on??

if the latter, then you would need to perform the 'stomp test' to retrieve codes. the reset proceedure is simply disconnecting the battery, or dme fuse and re-connecting. or proper engine reset tool by peake tools.
