Question about BMW X5 Series

1 Answer

A yellow warning signal has come on my dashboard. It is a straight horizontal line on a slight slope with a short curved line over it and an exclamation mark. Engine will only turn over and not start.

The car has recently been repaired as the timing chain went! Can't find out what this symbol is signifying. Are you able to help me please. Thank you

Engine sync. When the chain was replaced, the timing was not set correctly. And are you sure the chain "went"? Highly unlikely. Probably was a different problem to begin with.

SOURCE: unknown warning light

I suspect this is a low tire indicator, mine drove me nuts when I didn't know what it was till a buddy of mine told me. (my tires did not even look low to me). I would be willing to bet that the company that did your oil change was nice enough to put some air in your tires. Doing so, your light went off for a bit, but the slow leak is now getting low again and you will need to get it patched/plugged/repaired or filled with air again to get the indicator to go back out.

It is the Tire Pressure Mounted System (TPMS). It monitors the air pressure in your tires. If it is on, you have low tire pressure...or like me, it's just a faulty indicator. Mine came on, but I don't even have TPMS on my vehicle.

ESP = Electronic Stability Program malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
1. You can try to disconnect the battery from car terminals, waiting for 30 minutes and connect again the cables in order to reset the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
2. If this procedure does not work you must use a diagnostic equipment connected to the Data Link Connector (DLC) of the car. The ESP ECU fault memory can only be accessed and erased using diagnostic equipment connected to the DLC.
Note: ESP function includes ABS (Antilock Braking System) function!

A yellow warning light has appeasred on the dashboard.


In order to find out what triggered the warning light, you need to have the OBD-II port scanned. You can have a mechanic or any auto parts store perform the scan and the codes they get on their scanner will determine what the issue is.

Not sure what the icon on the dashboard was signalling


Semi-solved. It looks to be some sort of headlight warning. Fog lights?
I'm still investigating.
