Check if its not the gearbox thats leaking oil. Rather take it in and have it checked- if you end up with low oil levels in the gearbox it will leave you out of pocket with having to do expensive repairs or replacement.

SOURCE: motor oil red led indicator

now when you put the brake on you are drawing power from the fuse board to feed the stop lights,so either you have a power supply problem of some description or the brake pedal mechanism has pulled some cables.But you could also have a ECU problem where when you apply the brakes its throwing up the oil light which could be caused by a bad earth.Sorry but this is one of them problems where a BMW dealer mechanic would obviously have come across this before and would be able to sort it out in minutes.But the problem their is that a lot of garages have unscrupulous reception clerks that like to write a bill out to milk the customer..

SOURCE: BMW E38 735i no reverse gear..????

Before you make any other moves, I would try having the transmission flushed and refilled and filters changed and if that doesn't work, you may have burned out the modulator so you may have to shop around for another transmission or have that one rebuilt, whichever would be feasibly financial for you.

It sounds more like the alternator is bad. This will cause the battery to run down.

I got 730i bmw e38 gaer are notchanging

I'm sorry, it sounds like you need a new transmission.

Put the car on a lift and start it in the air. Open up the transmission fill plug and check the level. I bet you have almost no oil in there.

High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!
