You can select various languages, VIN decoding, parts search and also accessory list is available  http://www.etk.cc/bmw/language/EN/​       
Apparently it is sponsored by a U.S. online shop as the link then goes to there when ordering, but that does not matter, good info and it is up to date from 2016 while realoem and bmwfans are sometimes older.

Service Interval Indicator

1 When you turn on the ignition, you will see up to 5 green lights on the left of the indicator. These will go out after the car has started. Over a period of time, depending on how you have driven and the distance you have covered, a progressively reducing number of green lights will show when the ignition is switched on.

2 As long as you have at least one green light showing, you don't need any maintenance.

3 Some time after reaching the final green light an orange light will illuminate, together with the words oil service. This acts as a permanent reminder that you should now bring your car in for an oil service. Should you ignore the orange light, a red indicator will illuminate to indicate that the oil service is overdue. This is only a warning light and will not affect your BMW’s performance in the short term.

4 Following an oil service your Service Interval Indicator is re-set and you will now see 5 green lights on the left of the indicator when the ignition is switched on.

5 The green lights will again go out, one by one, counting down to your first major service. For pre September 1995 6 cylinder diesels an additional oil service will be required before the major service. These may seem to disappear quite quickly, but remember, the Service Interval Indicator has been monitoring your cars requirement for an inspection since delivery and not from your oil service when the BMW dealer service changed your oil and filter.

6 When the green lights have all disappeared the orange light and the word inspection appear, as a reminder until the car is serviced. Should you ignore the orange light, than a red warning light will appear alongside it to indicate that the service is now overdue.

7 Following an inspection your Service Interval Indicator is re-set by the BMW Service Technicians and you will again see 5 green lights on the left of the indicator.

8 For 1991 models onwards, every 24 months, timed from the original date of delivery, a small clock symbol, together with the word inspection will come on. For the E32 750i, 750iL, E31 850 and M models up to September 1994, the clock symbol comes on at 12 month intervals. It is now time for your car's brake fluid to be changed.

For pre-91 models and all 3 Series models excluding the current 3 Series, the clock symbol will appear every 12 months. It is now time for your car's Annual Check. The Service Interval Indicator will continue to monitor your BMW’s requirement for either an oil service or Inspection independent of the check.

9 On completion of the brake fluid change or Annual Check the Service Technicians will re-set this facility on the Service Interval Indicator.

Taking the guesswork out of calculating service intervals

To derive maximum satisfaction from driving your car, it is essential that it operates at peak efficiency. To this end, incorporated in the refined technology of your car is the BMW Service Interval Indicator.

With the Service Interval Indicator the timing of an Oil Service or relevant Inspection is an exact science rather than hopeful guesswork.

When determining at what time your car is in need of a service, driving style and road traffic conditions are far more important factors than merely the completion of a pre-ordained mileage.

For example, a car that is driven consistently on short journeys over congested roads will require more frequent servicing than a car which is mainly used for cruising at motorway speeds.

The BMW Service Interval Indicator monitors fuel consumption, and advised when an Oil Service or Inspection is needed from the volume of fuel consumed.

That may sound as simplistic as regulating service intervals by distance travelled or time. But it isn't. Because in a BMW, the Digital Motor Electronics (DME) systems meters fuel to the engine in precise response to how and where your car is being driven. The DME can even tell when the engine is being subjected to high stress conditions, such as pulling a heavy trailer up a steep hill. It governs all engine controls, including ignition timing and fuel injection, to ensure optimum efficiency at all times. It controls every opening of the fuel injectors- which can last for only a few milli-seconds - to meter the exact amount of fuel required at any point in time.

By this means, fuel consumption in a BMW gives a very precise indication of the stresses and strains that the engine is experiencing. By recording fuel consumption and advising a service at a set volume of fuel consumed, the Service Interval Indicator is using a very accurate assessment of the driving conditions your car has undergone, and making a service recommendation which is both informed and efficient for your car and your operating costs.

GROUP 12 Engine - Electrical B 12 02 87 (2087) Montvale, NJ
Technical Dept December 1987
SUBJECT: Electrical Motor Load Regulation (EML)
MODEL: 750iL
Electronic Motor Load regulation (EML) provides simplified and concise throttle management for an ever increasing variety of engine operating needs. The EML system assures reliable rpm stability regardless of temperature or load variations, without the need of idle control systems, throttle cables, auxiliary air valves, cruise control servos, etc.
The BMW EML/M1.2 engine management system maintains control unit intercommunication between the EML, DME and the AEGS systems. This "dialogue" enables the EML system to uniquely tailor the throttle response to a wider variety of changing parameters, which would not be possible with existing mechanical and auxiliary controls.
For example, new benefits such as cruise control operation and a reduced cold engine RPM limit are now provided electronically by EML. Another example of system flexibility is AEGS program matching. The throttle opening progression curve is now matched to specific AEGS programs which will enhance fuel economy ("E"Program) or maximize power development ("S" Program).

The EML System
The dual DME M1.2 control units, while part of the fuel injection system, should also be considered as part of the EML system. For complete M1.2 information, see TRI 12 01 87 (2083).

System Components
􀁺 Dual main power relays
􀁺 EML control unit
􀁺 Dual DME M1.2 control units
􀁺 Accelerator pedal assembly
􀁺 AEGS program switch
􀁺 Cruise control lever
􀁺 Dual electric throttle valves
􀁺 Fault indicator lamp

General Operation
Throttle valve control is managed electronically without the use of mechanical linkage. Accelerator pedal position now represents the "driver's desired throttle position". Switch contacts and a potentiometer attached to the accelerator pedal transmit the desired throttle position to the EML control unit. This electrical input as well as all other pertinent operating parameters are processed and the ideal throttle position is selected and maintained by EML. Throttle response is controlled with twin electric throttle valves which are operated by fastacting gear drive D.C. motors. In this way, optimum throttle response and compensation are provided for a wide variety of conditions including:
􀁺 Start-up throttle positioning
􀁺 Idle speed maintenance
􀁺 Cold engine frictional losses
􀁺 Air conditioning load fluctuation
􀁺 Gear engagement/disengagement
􀁺 Cylinder bank synchronization
􀁺 AEGS program matching
􀁺 Cruise control operation
􀁺 Maximum rpm limit
􀁺 Maximum vehicle speed limit
􀁺 Emergency operating programs

Accelerator Pedal Assembly

The EML accelerator pedal assembly contains a potentiometer (which generates a low voltage analog signal) that represents desired throttle position. Accelerator pedal released/depressed positioning is confirmed and verified by switch contacts known as the "90 switch". As accelerator travel crosses the 90 point, a high/low signal is monitored by the EML control unit. A safety switch completes a dedicated diagnostic circuit whenever the accelerator pedal is released. The diagnostic circuit is an independent hard wire "failsafe" which can, if necessary, initiate fuel shut off during brake application. Pedal travel and effort remain unchanged with the use of dual return springs which provide positive accelerator pedal release and pedal "feel".

EML Control Unit

The advanced EML control unit converts the accelerator pedal position values into responsive digital signals. Once processed, with consideration to other parameters and presets, the throttle valves are positioned accordingly.

Throttle Valve Assembly
1. Throttle plate
2. Gear drive
3. Electric motor drive
4. Electrical connector
The throttle valve assembly is a unitized, maintenance-free component. In addition to the internal subcomponents listed on page 3, the throttle valve assembly also contains electrical signalling devices and a positive closure return spring. The M70 employs two such throttle valves, one for each plenum, and they are operated and synchronized by the EML control unit. Precise cylinder bank balance is achieved by using the individual DME injector final stages as a reference. The EML control unit monitors physical throttle plate position from a feedback potentiometer and further verifies throttle movement via special contacts called the "170 switch". Throttle plate movement is sure and responsive, driven by D.C. electric motors via a gear drive.

EML Self-Diagnostics
EML self-testing and fault monitoring capability, combined with comprehensive safety circuity and stored emergency programs, offer predictable system responses in the unlikely event of component malfunction. From the initial start-up all aspects of the system are tested, cross-checked and monitored for proper operation. Many self-checks and failsafe features within and without the EML Control Unit employ redundancy for added reliability. The accelerator pedal/throttle valve relationship is monitored via the respective potentiometer signals and then confirmed by the 9° /17° switch positions. The 9° and 17° switches cannot be opened or closed simultaneously. The high/low signals produced by accelerator pedal/throttle valve travel are constantly monitored via a "switch window" arrangement within the EML control unit. EML fault lamp integrity is assured with the use of twin light bulbs. Associated functions which are relied upon for failsafe operation are monitored in much the same way as the EML system. Such is the case with deceleration fuel shut off. Ordinarily, a fuel saving function, decel fuel shut off is also used by the EML system to provide rapid power reduction. Should the DME fail to engage decel cutoff reliably, EML will recognize a fault and reduce power.
In addition to normal EML System fault monitoring, all parameters and functions are continuously compared to programmed safety logic values. Comparison of actual operating values to programmed presets determines whether the relationship of all EML System components is logical and plausible. For example:
􀁺 A constant accelerator pedal signal ordinarily would denote steady control by the driver. However, it could also be a stuck or blocked accelerator pedal. A "brakes applied" signal with a constant accelerator pedal signal represents conflicting values and would be deemed not plausible, causing an immediate reduction of power. System fault detection receives immediate classification. In most cases, especially those which might affect engine RPM, the EML fault lamp is illuminated and power is reduced immediately. Depending on the fault detected, the throttle opening may be reduced to a 20° angle or to a typical idle speed position. Should the throttle valve(s) fail to move, the DME on cue will reduce the millisecond injector time or discontinue injection thus providing a sustantial power reduction. EML system troubleshooting and fault memory access is provided in the standard way, using the BMW diagnostic module. Additionally, the hard wire diagnostic circuit which transmits the brakes applied signal via the accelerator pedal safety switch can be checked with BMW special tool P/N 88 88 6 127 010.
For full testing information, refer to Service Information Bulletin 12 06 87 (1502) and repair manual page 12 - 365 (dated 11/87).
