Mein Auto: X3 2010 3.0i
Check Engine light

Just bought my 2010 x3 3 weeks ago.
the car Have 27k miles on it.
And tonight the Check Engine light came on...
I don't know why, but i don't noticed something wrong with the car except the light in the dash.

Few minutes before the light came on, i have stop
the engine on D mode ( inatention mistake ) then put back to Park mode and remove the key.

But when i has restarted the car the light came on.
Don't know if its a reason?

Anyway i will bring the car to the shop, but i hope its not the begining of problems :-/

Thanks for your advice!

I doubt stopping your car in D would cause anything, I do it by accident many times.

Reads the codes they will tell you exactly what's going on

if you bought it 3 weeks ago, bring it back to where you brought it from. Let them determine what's wrong with it...

Thanks for your answer.

I also did an oil rustproofing 10 days ago.

I heard that sometime it could affect some sensor under the car??

Check your gas cap. If you gas cap is not properly tightened, the check engine light will illuminate.
