Of course you need to worry until you find out what the light means . IT could be a light warning you of a possible serious fault in the engine/ transmission ( engine fault light from no water ,brakes etc ) have it checked out before it can become costly.. Lights are not there as Christmas decorations but to save you money.

The most often failure which doesnt show RED warning light on the dash is ABS failure. You need to have your wheel speed sensors checked/replaced. One or more (theres one for each wheel) of the sensors are not delivering wheel speed information to the ABS/ESP computer.

The below is taken from another site written a year ago:
What you are looking at is the Service Indicator. The green, yellow and red lights let you know when service needs to be performed. The green lights mean everything is still good. The yellow lights mean "anytime you're ready." The red lights mean do the service ASAP. There are also two other lighted areas. One says "inspection," the other says "oil change" (or oil service.) An oil change is an oil change. However, there are two inspections: Inspection 1 is normally at every other 15,000 miles; Inspections 2 is at every 30,000 miles. Your local BMW dealer should have a pamphlet listing all duties performed for each of the services. Inspection 2 can run you around $400-$800 depending on the service station/dealership's labor rates. Inspections 1 should be around 1/2 of that. You should have your oil changed about every 5000 miles. Dealership oil changes can range from $35-$65. A BMW that is well taken care of will last a long time. 

FYI, don't be surprised if the SI (service indicator) board decides to **** out one day. I'm surprised to see yours is still working (they usually die within 10 years unless someone went thru the expense to have it replaced.) If/when it does go, just gauge your services by the mileage intervals I've listed above. I'd also recommend when you stop into (or just call) the dealership, go to the parts department and order an owner's manual for your BMW. Should be less than $20 and get to you in about a week unless they have one in stock.
When the service tech has performed the necessary service(s), he will reset your SI board so that only green lights are showing.

See the information attached, and use the common sense, and logically. God bless you
The CD/DVD, has 2 switch one for open and another for to close. the swicth can be dust, dirty, or defective.Test the power switch for dirty, dust, or defective.
The unity can be dissasembly, and make troubleshooting, diagnose.
I can recommend you to go the repair shop. When the switch is NOT open they NOT send the signal to the SYSCON(CPU) or microcontroller.

How do you turn off BMW X5 tire pressure light once the tires have been inflated


On some X5's you can do it through the instrument cluster whereas other through the button on the centre console depending on the spec.

On the centre console you'll find the tpc button. It looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation. With the ignition turned off, press and hold this button and turn on the ignition to position 2. You'll notice on the instrument cluster the light go red, yellow, off and then come back on yellow. When the light comes back on yellow release the button and wait with the ignition on until the yellow tpc button goes out. Thats it.

If this hasnt worked you have a different spec and therefore a different way of doing it! Let me know and il guide you through it.

Hope this helps!
