BMW Dashboard Symbols and Meanings

Every new BMW model has dashboard symbols and warning lights, from the seat belt reminder symbol to check engine light. These BMW dashboard indicator lights can keep you apprised of your vehicle's condition while on the go.

ABS Warning Light

When the Anti-lock Brake System indicator light illuminates on your dashboard, then it’s time to bring your vehicle into our Kingsport BMW service center. You can continue your journey cautiously, while trying to avoid braking with full force, driving on rough track, and depressing the accelerator pedal to full throttle or kick down position.

Oil Level Low Symbol

This signal means that your engine oil level is too low. Add proper oil immediately and contact Rick Hill BMW to schedule a quick oil change.

Traction Control Symbol

When this symbol illuminates, your tires have lost traction due to a slippery surface.

Tire Pressure Monitor

If this indicator lamp lights up in red, the tire has rapidly deflated. Please bring your car to a stop and check your tires. If this indicator lamp turns on in yellow, the tire pressure is off by about 10% or more. Remember that as the temperature drops, light may come on.
