That's your brake pad wear indicator ---means you need to have your brakes checked / replaced either in the front or rear.
It's a wear sensor wire ooked to the brake pad and when the pad wear down to the wire it lights up the dash warning light.

Why bmw dash lights keep turning off?


Your head light got nothing to do with the other two problems.
As for the air condition and the dash you need to change the ignition switch $63.00 from autozone this should take care of other problem such as air bag light as will.by the way air bag recall for all 2000 3 series for air bag light now dealer will fix for free of charge.
Good luck.

When I turn on my car the air bag light goes on like its not working. When this happens my power windows and heater/AC stop working. This has happened before but only for a short while. Now the problem...


Air bag light should go on each time you start the car, after a few seconds it turns off. Usually Air bag wiring is on its own for safety reasons. If you are having a short in your electrical system the first thing you should look at is your ground wire. When the problem started did you have any work done on the car? I have seen radio installers put in the wrong screws which have pierced lines. Hope this helps!

Air bag light on dash board citroen picasso


Check the plugs and sockets under the seats, they tell the airbag system if there are occupants and if the readings are wrong to the airbag ecu it disables itself and lights the warning lamp, clean the plugs and sockets or sometimes I have soldered the wires to get decent contact (one at a time)

Air bag sensor


A possible solution. i have a 2002 ranger in which the air bag light would present itself. i discoved that the passenger air bag indicater bulb was out if i had the airbag on or off. its located next to the key switch. i pulled it appart and notice the bulb was bad. replacing it fixed the problem. there is a catch. this bulb is solderd to the circuit board and you have to get it from radioshack. is a simple task if have a solder kit. hope that helps.
