hi the sensers work of voltage drop so my first question would be have you replaced any bulbs on your car they may have a different ampere rating which will give the senser a reading thats out of its tolerance setting and the light will come on or have you had any lights fitted same applies or could be a faulty senser yates210456

SOURCE: my 335i....actually a 2008 warning indicator gone haywire

There is an issue with the rear tail lamp bulb holders. BMW knows about this problem and released an updated part. Basically the bulb is not held tight enough, and occasinally loses contact with the holder. Your car should still be under warranty and any local BMW dealer should have the parts in stock.

SOURCE: Just replaced my front disc brakes & sensors on my 2008 328i BMW

That warning light is only supposed to come on when they touch metal, and when you take it away from the metal, it is supposed to shut off. You might have to pull a lead off the battery to get it to reset. Check the sensors, make sure the tips are not touching anything. Then do the battery thing.. Hope this helps.

How do I replace the battery in my 2008 bmw 535i


It is very easy to replace the battery. It is located in the trunk.
however, you would have to take your car to BMW to reset the car since you have put a new battery in the vehicle.

Engine warning light say "engine over heating" and heater blows only cold air and the vehicle looses speed


Loosing power is probably the computer trying to protect the engine from damage. The actual problem could be low coolant or a problem with the water pump.

Engine Malfunction Light...drives at reduced speed...best 40kmph


Oh you can drive it, but drive it to the shop and have the EGR(Exhaust Gas Recirculation)valve replaced. That is what's causing your lack of power. It has to work in conjunction with all other emission control systems and once it' goes bad the engine will have no power but seams to work fine otherwise. Change the EGR valve.

Engine power reduced appeared on the DIC of 2008 chevy cobalt


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.

I just bought a 2008 BMW 535i and the battery has already drained twice. The first time the battery drained in my driveway and another time it happened 1 hour away from home, leaving my wife stranded late...


The original equipment battery on this car is weak. I had to put a trickle charger on the battery for my 2008 BMW 535i to keep it charged. Your other option is to buy an aftermarket battery that is tougher than the original and costs less (about $110 versus $435).
