Actualy the light is for the ASR or ESP sysytem which ever you anme it and it senses if one or more of the tires is rotating in a defrent speed frome the other tires which implements that your car is slepping and the car will lower the engin power to avoide losing controle of the car and at the same time it uses the brake system to make the car keep on track so if is is happining all the time you should check the tires if not the maybe you have a problem with the sensores.

That tells you the tires are slipping. Like if you give it full throttle on wet pavement, it will slip a little and the light comes on.

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.

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.

Can't pull the radiator uot of my 1999 BMW 528i, t...


You gotta remove the fan and shround. Fan nut is 1.250" wrench. Fan nut is left handed thread. this means rightey loosey, lefty tightey. Go get the special tool to hold the fan pulley bolt heads. While you are turning the fan nut clockwise to loosen the special tool holds two of the fan pulley bolt heads to keep the fan pulley still. And voila, off comes the fan. then you can remove the shroud with it. Then you can remove the radiator. Fun job. I've got it down to 8 minutes.

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


Brake pads

Have the brake pads checked
immediately.
dc39396.jpg For your own safety: use only
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.<
