The "EML" warning light in a BMW indicates a problem with the "drive by wire" throttle control system."

"EML" is an acronym for "Elektronische Motorleistungsregelung". Loosely translated from the original German for the BMW owner means Electrionic Engine Power Control.

"EML" is BMW's system name for electronic throttle management. The "EML" system, in it's most basic sense consists of an accelerator pedal (with an electronic position sensor), a computer module (usu. integrated with the main engine computer), and an EDK (Elektronische Drosselklappe or Electronic throttle valve). The EDK is also known as a "drive by wire" throttle. "EDK" throttles use a computer controlled stepper motor rather than a purely mechanical linkage (usu. metal cable attached directly to the accelerator pedal) to control the opening and closing of the throttle plate.

"Drive by wire" throttles are very common on modern vehicles starting in the late nineties up through the present day. "Drive by wire" technology enables very precise throttle control to improve drivability and vehicle emissions, as well as many convenience features like electronic cruise control, traction control & stability control.

BMW first implemented "drive by wire" in very limited quantities on the most expensive & sophistocated BMW models starting in 1988.

The latest generation of advanced vehicle features to take advandage of "drive by wire" technology are radar guided cruise control, accident avoidance control, autonomous-driving, and autonomous-parking systems.

This is funny. How do you know that it wount srart if you can't open the doors? Ofcourse the battery can be dead, but it is wery common thst the bodymodule breaks. That's the reason for doors not opening. Usually. There is lots of info availeble, just goigle e46 bodymodule. Startingproblem is something I need more info about. Unless the problem is dead battery.

Normally atf(automatictransmissionfluid)is ok for powersteering also, but there are some bmw models that it doesn't fit.
If you have a green label on your powersteering oil tank, then you should use sfs11, if I remember right. Anyway this whatewer oil ia the same that citroen uses for hydraylic systems. Suspension etc.
But don't mix them.

I would check the connections at the battery first for corrosion , usually the positive grows green crud. It will let most systems work but the starters heavy load will not maintain the heavy current drawn thru the crud. If batt con ok then maybe look at the connections on the starter.

The filter (not SULEV) is located under the car almost right underneath the drivers seat. There is a metal panel secured by three 8mm screws and two 8mm nuts.

Have a look at the wires that come through to the boot - they are known for wearing out due to boot opening and closing over period of time on the 3 series. Could also be brake light switch which i think is near the pedal - see if this is stuck or had fused - may be just some WD40 in the switch could help.

Check for broken breather hose from valve cover and follow it under the intake. You may also have a ruptured diaphragm crankcase ventilation valve (vac leak), bolted under intake manifold.
