It is the brake pad warning light. It means the brake pads are worn to the point at which they need replacing. More than likely only the front need replacing but you should have them all inspected.

Cant read dashborad light


sounds like your brake lining light. It means your brakes have worn below specification. The light to me kinda looks like a yellow circle with two dashes on one side and two on the other and they follow the curvature of the circle. On an x3 you can get a pretty good view of the brake pads looking through the wheel.

It's your brake wear indicator light coming on. It means your brake pads are about 3/32" or less left on your pads. It's time to replace them.
