That means a fault code has been loaded into the computer memory. You will need to connect a scan tool to the ODBII port and read the code to determine what is wrong.

It's your "check engine" light. It means a fault was triggered to the computer. Have someone with BMW scanner or dealer check and repair before it strands you somewhere.

Please refer to the owners manual for red light warning, it can be low oil pressure or hot engine or emissions system. If you don't have an owqners manual you can find used ones on eBay Motors.

BMW 1988 325 Dashboard orange check light stays on while driving.


The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.
