That sounds like a loose fuse. Check your fuse panel and verify everything is snug. If it all looks good, it could be a bad fuse. Find the fuse that controls the dash lights and replace it. If it's still bad you must have a loose wire somewhere.

SOURCE: My 1998 BMW 328i SERIES has a brand new battery

Firstly nice car.

It sounds like the alternator could be giving you hassle and the battery is not charging as you drive it. Two easy ways to check this 1. drive your car close to a wall at night and rev the engine with the lights on, if the lights dim then the alternator is nackered. 2. If you have access to a voltmeter check the voltage on the battery with the engine off, then turn on the engine and get some one to rev it. If the alternators working then the should only be slight movement in the voltage if not it will drain heavily (5-10 volts)

To reset the check control light turn the key in the ignition to as far as all the lights in the dash come on (dont start it) leave it in this position for about 2 mins (the car runs its own diagnostic check) then turn it off take out the key and put it back to the dash lights on position again.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hi i have a BMW 1 series - faluty hydraulics

The trick with these sellers are that they would say the warranty does not cover wear and tear and they will say this is not under cover,this is a typical trick they use in the UK to catch poor victims.Look for a cheaper labour as this is just a joke to have it repaired at a garage for this cost.Hydrualics is to do with power steering etc and this is an important part for this vehicle to function properly.Get in touch and if you are local I can help you.

My car is a BMW series 1. I have two amber lights on my dashboard. The handbrake sign and a circle with a triangle in the middle. What does this mean?


I took a quick look but couldn't find your model but in a BMW you have a "Dynamic Stability Control" which is for controlled driving in bad situations basically. Now like I said I couldn't look up your exact model but look in your vehicle for a button on the dash/radio/instrument cluster. The button you want to find should be marked "DSC" which turns this control on or off manually. You may have hit that button by accident. Push it and it should turn the system back on. If that doesn't work it means you have a problem in the DSC and it is not working. If this is the case unless you are a BMW mechanic, you need to take it to someone who is to take care of it. It's no real danger like the brakes are out but the handling will be limited to what it used to be. That's what both those lights on together mean. I hope this helps and good luck.
