Being a 318 I am assuming that your car is an automatic? This light is normally a fault indicator lamp for the transmission, on the x-series can be for the transfer box too. It is normally associated with reduced engine performance and limited or no gear change. It will require being checked by someone in the know who has the appropriate diagnostic equipment. Having been in the transmission industry- be careful! A lot of rouges out there.
