Sounds like the windshield washer fluid is low or the sensor is malfunctioning but, what do I know, I'm Irish?

rough edged circle with exclamation point in it is illuminated

The transmission has responded to a malfunction by reverting to operation in its emergency default program. Please consult the nearest BMW center.
For additional information: refer to page 59

(page 59)
Electronic transmission control module
If the indicator lamp comes on, there is a malfunction in the
transmission system.
Bring the vehicle to a stop. Move the transmission selector lever to "P."
Engage the parking brake and turn the engine off (ignition key to position 0).
Wait a few seconds, then start the engine.
If the indicator lamp goes out after a few seconds, normal transmission performance has been restored. You may continue to drive as usual.
If the indicator lamp does not go out, you can place the selector lever in all positions. However, the vehicle will now only operate in 3rd and 4th gear.
If this happens, avoid extreme engine loads and consult the nearest BMW center. hope this helps you to aviod ruining your vehicle

Tailights,Dashboard Lights Fuse Keeps Blowing Out


One thing to check and I have come across this a couple of times is that some factory stereos used a black wire for the stereo illumination, if you have wired the black (earth) from the new unit to this wire it will cause the fuse to blow, disconnect the earth from this wire and wire it directly to the vehicle.

This Sign appears on the dashboard , What Is the problem? VW eurovan


I m not familiar with VW Eurovan but, assuming your vehicle is diesel powered, I would say that the sign indicates a fault with the "pre-heaters" which should only come on when cold starting a diesel. Normally, this sign appears on switching on, and you wait until it goes out before starting.
Does this happen on your vehicle and, has this symbol previously gone out after a few seconds? There is a relay, on the starting circuit, which should cut these pre heaters, after a short while.
I see that your temp gauge shows 90 degrees so, he engine is hot.
Try disconnecting the leads to the glow plugs, check that the engine starts OK and see if the warning symbol disappears In warm weather you can leave the leads disconnected and, if you have a meter, check if there is still power to the glow plug leads after the engine has started. (a 12 v bulb and wire would do). It they are still powered, there is a fault with the glow plug relay.

Engine symbol


Hi there:
When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

The four most common Check Engine light scenarios and what to do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Srs light


Contrary to popular belief, the dashboard SRS light CAN be reset without the need for a Rover dealer! All that is needed is a paperclip.
  1. Directly under the steering wheel, just under the bottom of the dashboard and above the pedals, there should be a wide grey connector.
  2. A few inches towards the driver's door from this, there should be a horizontal 2-pin yellow connector (with nothing connected to it).
  3. Bend the paperclip into a u-shape, and push the ends into the 2-pin yellow connector (shorting the pins).
  4. Turn on the ignition, and the SRS light should illuminate for a few seconds and then go out.
  5. Now pull out the paperclip (but not completely out), breaking the link.
  6. After a couple more seconds, the SRS light should illuminate again.
  7. Now push the paperclip back in, making the link again.
  8. After a couple of seconds, the SRS light should blink twice.
  9. Remove the paperclip, and then switch off the ignition.

That resets the SRS system and next time you start the car, the lamp should be off.

The above all needs to be carried out fairly quickly as you only get a few seconds between each step.

Note:
Because you can't see the yellow connector and the SRS light at the same time, it's really a two-person job.

Important:
Obviously this only applies if there is no fault! If there is a fault, the light will illuminate again and will therefore need to be looked at by a Rover dealer.

This procedure is pretty tricky, but it is 100% correct.

Maintenance light flashing


h) Engine Oil Replacement Reminder
Light (for vehicles sold in U.S.A.)
This light reminds you when to replace
the engine oil.
This light will come on when the ignition
key is turned to “ON” and will go off after
about a few seconds.
When you drive for about 8000 km (5000
miles) after the engine oil replacement,
this light illuminates for about 3 seconds
and then flashes for about 12 seconds
with the ignition key turned to “ON” position.
If you continue driving without the
engine oil replacement, and if the driving
range exceeds 12000 km (7500 miles), the
light will come on after the ignition key is
turned to “ON” position. The light will remain
on thereafter.
If the light is flashing, we recommend that
you replace the engine oil at an early
opportunity depending on the driving and
road condition. If the light comes on, replace
it as soon as possible.
You need to reset the light after the engine
oil replacement. Reset the light by
following the procedure below:
1. Turn the ignition key to the “OFF” position
with the odometer reading shown.
(For details, see “Odometer and two
trip meters” on page 136 in this Section.)
2. Turn the ignition key to the “ON” position
while holding down the trip meter
reset button.
Hold down the button until the light goes
off. Before the light goes off, it illuminates
for 3 seconds, flashes for 2 seconds and
illuminates for 1 second.
If the system fails to reset, the light will
remain flashing.
