Question about BMW 1 Series

1 Answer

Hello I have a intermittant red brake light coming on in my 116i bmw 1 series. It is a shape of a car, with two lines coming out underneath it, one going to the left, and one to the right. The book indicates it may be the brakes but it doesnt say specifically that it is. I have had it checked at the dealer where I brought it, and they have confirmed that the brakes were new (discs and pads) on the front when I brought it in June of this year, and the back brakes and pads were checked before I brought the car, and passed. The light was intermittant, up until a few days ago, then I took it on a country road and took a sharp bend and the light has been on ever since. Does anyone know specifically what this is? Sensor? Many thanks

Not familiar with that figure, but you should check brake fluid level and look for fluid leaks at the wheels and master cylinder.

Red light on the dash, exclamation with a circle around it, bmw 330


Depending on your location, that sounds like the brake symbol. Is the emergency brake pulled? If not, does it come on intermittently? If it does, it could be low brake fluid.

Red oil light comes on intermittantly as does the


Assuming these readings are false, I have asimilar problem in my 540 which tells me allt the exterior bulbs are not working. The bulb sensor is faulty so I think you are safe in your assumption although the oil light showing would scare me, false or not. I suggest you get a service agent to cast his/her eyes over that one.

When do i need to change my brake pads on 116i bmw?


Stick to what your dealer tells you. The brake lining indicator lights when the pads are so thin the rivets will start eating into the rotors in about 1000km.

Where is the oil filter located on the bmw 116i


right at the front in the middle below plastic housing. Has 1 large plastic cap on a metal lower casing, not metal bodied like old oil filters just has filter element. Also replace 'O' rings that should come with the new filter as the old will have squared off or become perished. I think you need a 27mm socket to undo the filer housing.
