    Post Need a fair, reliable, trustworthy independent bmw mechanic in westchester ny

    HI EVERYONE... MY SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON (HAS BEEN ON AWHILE) I BROUGHT THE CAR SEVERAL TIMES TO THE BMW SERVICE CENTER IN PORT CHESTER AND IT WAS A DISASTER! THEY COULD NOT FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM NEVER MIND THAT UPON RETURNING THERE WERE FUSES BLOWN OUT ETC.

    THEY EVEN TRIED LYING SAYING ITS OK SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT IS OFF BY RESETTING THE CAR BUT RIGHT WHEN I WENT TO TAKE THE CAR THE LIGHT WAS STILL ON! I PUT S NEW O2 SENSOR AMONG OTHER THINGS BUT ALL IT DID WAS RUN UP MY BILL AND NOT SOLVE THE ISSUE.

    BUT... NOW RANDOMLY AFTER A VERY COLD DAY LIKE 4 DEGREES IT WAS HERE, AS I WAS DRIVING THE YELLOW "BRAKE" LIGHT WENT ON (THE EMERGENCY BRAKE BUT IN YELLOW NOT RED) AND MY TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT IN THE CENTER DISPLAY WENT ON AS WELL. .. PRESSING THE DSC BUTTON DOES NOTHING, I CHECKED THE BRAKE FLUID AND THAT IS FINE.

    AFTER RESEARCHING I SAW THERE WAS MANY OPTIONS SUCH AS SPEED SENSORS ON THE TIRES BEING DIRTY OR NEEDING NEW ONES? OR SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS GETTING MY WHEELS ALIGNED?

    I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY CAR =( THE SOLUTION DOESN'T SEEM EXTREME (AS FAR AS THE BRAKE LIGHT AND TRACTION WHO KNOWS WITH THE CHECK ENGINE) THE CAR IS DRIVING FINE BUT FOR SOMETHING LIKE A SENSOR AND ALSO TO TRULY FIND OUT WHY MY SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON WITHOUT A RUN AROUND WOULD BE NICE!

    THANK YOU FOR ANYONE WHO CAN HELP!!
