This is the Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor check your tire pressures ensuring they are all up to specification and then 'Reset' the system using this method:

Initializing the system


Initializing is necessary to familiarize the system with the correct tire inflation
pressure.

Repeat this process after any changes in tire inflation pressure, tire replacement or rotation.

1. Check the tire inflation pressure in all the tires, comparing them with the
inflation pressure table (page 25 of your manual), and adjusting their pressure if necessary

2. Turn the ignition key to position 2

3. Press button as long as you need to until the indicator lamp in the instrument cluster lights up. After a little while, the indicator lamp will go out
by itself

4. After a few minutes, the Flat Tire Monitor will accept the current inflation
pressure as the value to be measured against, and from that point on, can detect and report a flat tire.

Activating/deactivating the system


The system is automatically activated in ignition key position 2 and consequently is on whenever the vehicle is operated.

To deactivate the system, tap the button, the indicator lamp will light up
yellow.

To activate the system, tap the button again; the indicator lamp goes out.

Deactivate the system when snow chains are mounted, since false warnings and undetected losses in pressure are possible under these kinds of conditions.

The tire pressure is low on one or more of the tires. Check the tire pressure and put air in and everything will work great

What does the yellow cog light on the dash of my 1999 BMW Z3 mean?


The car is now quite old, and the yellow gear ("cog") light indicates that the hydraulic pressure in the transmission is incorrect. Check fluid level and, if the fluid is murky or off-color, have the transmission serviced and the filter replaced.

Cant read dashborad light


sounds like your brake lining light. It means your brakes have worn below specification. The light to me kinda looks like a yellow circle with two dashes on one side and two on the other and they follow the curvature of the circle. On an x3 you can get a pretty good view of the brake pads looking through the wheel.
