EML & Engine lights on

Hi All,

I parked my 2006 BMW M Roadster for the last 4 months and went to start it today, the battery was dead so I gave it a boost, but when I started the EML light, handbrake, and engine light all came on. I don't have any throttle control and my car is rendered useless. Anyone know what the problem may be? It was fine when I parked it in September.

Please see attached pic for more details on my dash. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Think the car went into transport mode. Believe that only dealer can reset the computer but I am not sure.

Also might just need a new battery as your battery was dead. If you have a battery tender hook it up to recharge the battery.

My EML light problem was a TPS sensor. It was cheap ($120 or so) and it's easy to get at. I might start there.
