    OK but after that he must start engine turn steering wheel full left side and full turn right side. After that maybe it helps, if not, he must come to bmw dealer and check system for trubles with diagnostic.

SOURCE: what does the warning light of a yellow triangle

Standard Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA ®) with Traction Control and Brake Assist Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is an electronic stability control system that works in conjunction with the Pilot's drive-by-wire throttle and its 4-channel ABS systems to enhance controllability while the vehicle is accelerating, braking, cornering or when the driver makes a sudden maneuver. VSA functions by applying brake force to one or more wheels independently while also managing the throttle, ignition and fuel systems to help the vehicle maintain the driver's intended path of travel.

The VSA system constantly analyzes data from seven sensors that monitor wheel and vehicle speed, steering input, lateral G forces and yaw rate. It compares the driver's control inputs with the vehicle's actual response. Whenever the actual response falls outside of a predetermined acceptable range, VSA intervenes with a corrective action.


For instance, if VSA detects an oversteer condition, the system may apply braking force to the outside front and rear wheels to counteract the unintended yawing effect. In the event of understeer, VSA may apply braking to the inside rear wheel while reducing engine power to help return the car to its intended course. VSA also provides a limited-slip differential effect for the front wheels by applying braking force to a slipping wheel, thereby redirecting driving force to the wheel with more traction.

There is a button on the lower left part of the dashboard that says "VSA". Push it and the triangle will dissappear (this should only be turned off if you are using a spare tire that is smaller than the rest of the tires).

Good luck.

SOURCE: Warning light on: Yellow circle

It's the ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system warning light!
For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

My 2006 BMW convertible top wont re tract. the yellow light comes on and nothing. the manual doesnt say want to do to fix...?


The convertible top is controlled by the Convertible Top Module (CVM II). This module contains the processing, controlling and monitoring electronics for the complete top operation.
The CVM II communicates with the General Module over the K-BUS for operation of the top storage cover and windows. The CVM II is fully diagnosable and contains fault memory for storage of monitored faults. Diagnosis is carried out over the K-BUS with the DIS or the MoDIC.
To put all of that "technical jargon" into plain English, If your convertible top is malfunctioning, you must BEGIN diagnosis by scanning your onboard computer network with the proper equipment.

What does the indicator light above the odemeter mean when it flashes- it the light that is shaped like a triangle with a almost complete circle around it.


If the light you are seeing is yellow/orange in color (see below example), and flashes intermittently when you're driving, that is the Dynamic Stability Control indicator.

DSC is always turned on, by default, unless you turn it off. The indicator light will flash whenever the DSC system detects any loss of traction or stability (oversteer/understeer), when your vehicle is in motion.
