my check engine light never comes on, even when i turn the ignition on pos1 or pos2. neither does my sisters 320i. i've read about aussie and their check engine light never comes on either.

do you guys have a CEL? i've replaced the bulb and no go!

anyone shed some light on this?

it should come on before you start the car.

you can test all the lights / functions of your guage cluster and see if the light comes on.

Hold down the reset trip button on your cluster with the ignition not engaged, you will see the display light up. Turn the key to POS2, and let go of the reset trip button.

Your cluster will go through a series of tests, one of which is to test all the bulbs on the cluster (including check engine.)

yeah i've already done that, and so has my sister, no CEL.

Can all you 320i drivers check if you have a CEL ever coming on...
