9 months have passed since you ask so you probably know by now but may help others , that is indicating that the front brake pads need replacing, there is a sensor that activates when wear on pads reach a certain point, you have a little time left after light comes on but no need waiting too long and chance scarring rotors.

What does the yellow cog light on the dash of my 1999 BMW Z3 mean?


The car is now quite old, and the yellow gear ("cog") light indicates that the hydraulic pressure in the transmission is incorrect. Check fluid level and, if the fluid is murky or off-color, have the transmission serviced and the filter replaced.

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.

A dash light emblem of a circle with 3 dashes on either side.. what does this mean?


If it looks like the symbol in the image below, it is your brake pad wear sensor.

Your front or rear brake pads are probably worn out (and are below the minimum thickness) and need to be replaced.

Or the wear sensor could be faulty and need replacement also.

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.<
