I am a new owner a 2000 BMW 323ci and after I turn it on the yellow oil light turns on for about 30 seconds then it shuts off. Do I need to do anything about this or can I ignore it?

My reverse lights don't work on my 2000 323CI 5 speed BMW when in gear


The fuse holder contains 10A fuse F27 which supplies power to the reversing light switch. When you shift into reverse with the engine running, the switch closes and the back up lights turn on. If the fuse is OK, you may have a defective switch

Yellow oil symbol kept turning on


this could be due to low oil. you need to check your oil level. if it is full i would do an oil change with a bmw filter. there is a difference in filters. the service engine soon light will have to be diagnosed. meaning pull codes to point you in the right direction. great car though. happy holidays

Yellow oil light comes on when starting the car


The 'idiot' light only lights at about 4 pounds of oil pressure (not a good thing) or below which means that: 1. Sensor has failed (very common) 2. Oil filter may be too dirty to pass oil as it should and the bypass in it has failed. 3. Oil pump is worn and failing.
The latter two possibilities can mean that you have low pressure compared to what it should be (30-60#) but enough above 4# to keep the sensor happy.
The sensor isn't terribly costly, even on a BMW it should be less than $30 US and the labor to install it is about 10 minutes.
