SOURCE: CIRCLE SYMBOL with dashes around the outside what does this mean?

Brake pads

Have the brake pads checked
immediately.

brake pads that BMW has
released for your particular vehicle
model. BMW cannot evaluate nonapproved
brake pads to determine if
they are suitable for use, and therefore
cannot ensure the operating safety of
the vehicle if they are installed.<

Exclamation mark inside a circle in brackets lit up in red. cant figure out what it means


Brake warning light. Easiest thing to check is your brake fluid level, or your e-brake is released.

What does it mean when yellow circle with an exclamation mark inside the circle to the left side of the letter D when I put my car in drive


Should consult manual but usually this symbol means either tire pressure or could be brake pad wear if it has a circle with another circle around it such as -- (O)
Sometimes this could also mean your ebrake is engaged. Even if it is not engaged the sensor could be bad.

What does the exlamation mark mean in your dash


I think this is a picture of your instrument cluster (see below) but if your talking about a light, which one are you talking about because I don't see an "exlamation" mark. Just reply/comment as to which number you are talking about and I think I will be notified that you replied and I will check and tell you what it means. Sorry I can't be of anymore help at this point.clifford224_71.jpg

The light came up on instrument panel. its the one looks like an exclamation mark. is ther a problem with the hydraulic brake system?


There are two symbols with an exclamation mark. The first is a oblong circle with the exclamation mark inside with ( ) on each side of the oblong circle. That symbol is for brake system warning light. Check brake fluid level, check brake pads. The other symbol is (!) and is flat on the bottom its suppose to resemble a tire, it means there is a problem with the tire monitor system, check your tire pressure, if you have low tires you will have to drive car after servicing the tires then the light should go out. Tire pressure should be on a placard on the driver door or door frame.

2003 Corolla (toyata). I have a light with an exlamation mark inside of a circle showing up any idea what this is ?


It is the handbrake light (eBrake). If it is not applied, then the rear pads will be low causing the light to come on. Check the sensor under the handle too, it might be loose causing the light to stay on.
