A certain light has started coming on when I first start the car then it goes off.
The light looks like an exclamation point in brackets. Also sometimes the word brake comes on then goes away not all the time just occasionly. I've only had the car for 7 weeks today. I didn't get a owners manual with it.
Re: A certain light has started coming on when I first...
The light with the exclamation point in brackets is for the TPMS. Tire Pressure Monitor System. This will come on when one or more of your tires have low pressure. As far as the brake light this will come on when you go around a sharp curve because of the brake fluid level may be low. I have a 2007 sebring and have had the same problems. Hope this helps!!!

If the exclamation mark is in the middle of a rough circle, then it means the transmission is in safe mode due to malfunction. Put the car in park and engage the parking break. Turn off the engine and wait. After 30 seconds, restart the car. If the light is no longer on, the transmission is back in normal performance. Take it to a mechanic to have things checked out. If the light remains on, the car will only operate in certain gears and driving performance will be limited. The car requires immediate attention from a BMW mechanic and should not be driven any more than necessary to get to the mechanic.might be speed sensor or transmission control module.
IT SOUNDS LIKE THE TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT. YOUR TIRES LOOSE AIR PRESSURE WHEN THE WEATHER GOES FROM HOT TO COLD. TRY ADDING SOME AIR TO THE TIRES. THE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT. ALSO, LOOK IN THE OWNERS MANUAL, IT SHOULD GIVE AN EXPLANATION OF WARNING LIGHTS.
