Does the one look something like this? IIIOIII or (((O)))

this is the brake wear indicator saying that you need brake pads somewhere on the car (front or rear).

the other sounds like you either have the traction control (its a button with either DSC or ASC written on it) turned off or its showing you that it is off because you need need brake pads.

What does the yellow cog light on the dash of my 1999 BMW Z3 mean?


The car is now quite old, and the yellow gear ("cog") light indicates that the hydraulic pressure in the transmission is incorrect. Check fluid level and, if the fluid is murky or off-color, have the transmission serviced and the filter replaced.

The is a light on in the section where the battery, seat belt light,is this light is a circle and it has 2or 3 bars on each side of the circle what indicator is this 4. my car is bmw328i 1999.


That would be the brake warning light and would mean one of three things.
1) The hand brake is not fully released or the switch is faulty and not switching off.
2) The brake fluid level is low in the reservoir.
3) The brake pads are worn down to the point where they need replacement.
