Hello There.

These come on as a precousionary measures, even if there is a slight misfire in the engine it generates a code which can be read and inform you why it is there, most of the time these are minor things and light can be reset. The only time you need to get seriously worried is when the letters 'eml' light up with the engine light, then you have a serious problem.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

thanks

There is a reason that the light is on.
an o2 sensor can do it and other than burn some extra gas,will run ok
the other one that is common is the "evap"cose from a loose gas cap.disconnect the battery for 5 minutes.hook it up and if there are no issues,the light will go out.alot of vehicles will erase the code in 50 starts if the trigger does not show again.

Hi Savageh. I would check the fuses in the glove box. You should have a fuse guide that lists which fuses are which. My diagram says fuse 57 is for your model year x3.

Hi i have a 2007 bmx x3 , and i was driving my car suddenly the temperature light appeared ant the car stopped for security, then, when it cooled down it started again, but after 3 blocks the same thing...


check the water level in the radiator and in the expasion tank,
I reckon the thermostat has failed (very very likely).
http://auto.howstuffworks.com/cooling-system8.htm

when it fails it never opens to circulate water to the radiator, if this is true your temp gauge will read HOT but the radiator will be quite cool compared to the engine. ------ Thermostat is around $60 / £48 from BMW only!!, a non-bmw part is false economy and will invalidate your warranty.

2005 BMW X 3 service interval reset


Hi geonkm, if you look on the instrument clusteryou will see 2 buttons in the lower centre part of the dash, make sure the ignition is swiched off, press and hold the left button and turn the ignition on to the first position keep holding the button down until you see the display change, then lift you finger and press and hold again untill reset appears ( normally after aprox 5 seconds ) it will also flash, once this happens lift your finger again then press and release straight away, this should reset the service indicator. regards mark ps you may want to print this off prior to trying to reset to make it easier to follow, good luck
