SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

It means that the engine power has been reduced - either automatically when the brain of the car has detected a mechanical problem in the engine or you have engaged the rain mode.
Usually this happens when you use a low quality fuel. But i've stumbled on rare cases when the Vanos sensor valve was the cause. The only way to precisely tell which is expensive and implies a visit to a dealer.

SOURCE: yellow warning lights on, refered to exhaust

ok if these are error codes for O2 sensors then don't worry about the post-cat sensor. the pre-cat may affect gas mileage slightly, but won't stop your car. however, my experience says the DME or ECU what ever you want to call it can giive false readings if it gets wet..

are there any performance issue?

you might check the ecu/dme read below

the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

you gain acess to it under the hood....
this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
compartment.

the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
sensors....

all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
harness.

I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
one out.

BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

The relay under the hood may have gone out. We had the same problem on our 2007 Buick LaCrosse CX. The bulbs were fine, high beams worked, all turn signals and everything except the low beams turned on. Turns out the relay had gone bad.

How do I turn off the airbag light in my '05 645 BMW?


Hi this problem requires diagnostic equipment to check what faults are present in the restraints system. Only if faults appear intermittent can be erased and system will correct ,air bag light will go off. (present faults will not allow system to repair it self ).

How to turn off flat tyre light in bmw 2006 520d


You can solve this via the iDrive menu>Service>RPA.
There you can select to reinitialize the tire-pressure warning.
You should do that every time after correcting your tire pressure.
Read your instruction manual.

What does * LIMIT 4 MPH* message means on BMW X5 2001


It sounds like you inadvertently set the speed warning (you can set it in the OBD to warn you if you go over a certain speed). If the car has nav, look under the "settings", second page, and turn it off or set it to something like 85. If you don't have nav, I'm not sure where the setting is but look for "speed warning" in the manual. Hope that helps.

images?q=tbn:and9gcromfct7szg4xy6bfz3ww6okyvqd0j2ewyn08t7kfrxtgk7gdfbxp5xoewAre you describing something like this? This symbol indicates that your vehicle has detected a problem with the airbag or seatbelt restraint system. It won't (or shouldn't) interfere with the way your vehicle operates, but it will likely disable the restraint system to prevent improper inflation of airbags. Obviously, the system won't operate properly in an accident, so you should get this checked as soon as possible.
