I take it this is on a cold start? its just low on coolant you may want to have it pressure tested as the coolant system has alot of plastic and can fail most likely to fail is the side of the radiator, the resevoir tank or the T-stat seal

The obvious thing is to check the fluid level. Check car guide for this. Is the light yellow or red. BMW has progressive warning lights. If it is yellow it is telling you it is low but not empty. If it is red you need to pull over immediately and check fluid level (refer to user guide).

Why is my yellow coolant light keeps going on and off on my 2004 BMW z4


Check the coolant level - if it's borderline low, it may register as "low" when you go around turns (especially with the engine cold), then as "full" when you get onto a straightaway again (especially with the engine hot).

Coolant disappears, no visual leaks, temperature seems ok.


Have your cooling system pressure tested. You might check for coolant in your oil, possible seepage of head gaskets. You don't see steam or white smoke from exhaust do you?

My BMW Z4 coolant light came on. Do I need to use BMW brand coolant or can I substitute another brand?


you can substitute with another coolant, but the manufactors one is recommended for many reasons. Best of all because it has been tested for the heatin BMW engines. Mix it 50/50 with water and I'd reccommend using the bmw coolant to stop overheating and causeing serious damage i.e. gead gasket.

BMW 318 ci coolant light comes on then goes off -


more than likely is being caused by a faulty level sensor but first check the connection and fluid level when engine is cold as fluid level will rise when engine warms up

Convertible top won't open


If its yellow, thats a good thing. Check in the trunk that the two knobs that hold the top when retracted are in the down position. Top should drop like it always has. LOVE MY Z4!

I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission


The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK
