I have a orange warning light on, circle with 3 dashes either side ?


This symbol is for worn brake pads. When the pads wear down the sensors make electrical contact with the disc rotor and the light comes on as the circuit is completed. Check out brake pads all round, inmost cases the pads at the front wear down first. Check symmetry of wear. The pads should wear symmetrically and evenly either side of the brake disc. If the pads are wearing on just one side of the disc check that the caliper body is not seized and that the brake guide pins are allowing freedom of movement. It is always a good idea to replace all the pads on one axle at the same time as this ensures even braking. Remember, after replacing pads to pump the brake pedal until stiff prior to moving off so that you can be sure that you can stop when you have to.

1993 S500-yellow light started flashing on the instrument panel. Round circle with 3 dots on both sides, between the ABS and Brake on the instrument panel


that light is your warning light for the brake pads. One of the brake pad sensors is starting to touch the rotor causing the light to come on or flash. Have the brakes checked. You will probably be needing to replace the brakes and the sensors.

CIRCLE SYMBOL with dashes around the outside what does this mean?


Brake pads

Have the brake pads checked
immediately.

brake pads that BMW has
released for your particular vehicle
model. BMW cannot evaluate nonapproved
brake pads to determine if
they are suitable for use, and therefore
cannot ensure the operating safety of
the vehicle if they are installed.<

Amber warning lite on dash circle with 3 dashes on each side


Warning light for low or worn brake pads. Could also be a damaged sensor wire or connection. Most likely pads though.
