This triangle might be the warning light that the traction control system is switched off. to switch traction control back on again, locate the button to the lower right hand side of the steering wheel, down beside the headlamp levelling switch. The button should read VSA OFF. With the engine running press this button and the lamp should go out. Note that in slippery conditions when the front wheels start to spin this triangle will flash as the traction control kicks in. Hope this helps. Stuartie.

its most likely the traction control warning that the wheels had spun and power was briefly reduced to stop wheelspin. there should be a switch on the dash centre panel with TC or ASR if you press this switch it will put the triangle light on constantly until pressed again. this disables the system so be careful as wheelspin will be inevitable !! lol

The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

ESP system includes ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.
ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.

Yellow triangle with ! in the middle popped up on dashboard what does that mean


It's the ESP warning light, You may have a ESP button on the dash which you can push to reset it, Otherwise try having the car idling in neutral and turn the steering wheel fully left then right the back to middle, This should reset the light, if it comes back you will need to get the car plugged into a diagnostic scanner to find the issue.

I have a bmw 318i e90 (2006), i have 2 warning lights on my dash, one is (!) in yellow, and the other yellow triangle with ! inside it with an arrow goinground it anti-clockwise. What do these mean? Thanks


hi, in my book it says, the (!_) with the exclamation mark in middle is..low tyre pressure, and the triangle on is the stability control and traction control..you should have a button on the centre consol to turn this on and off if it does not turn off you will have to take it to main dealer as there is a fault with it hope this helps
