Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

I have a 2005 BMW X3 which I purchased in March 2008 when it had only 30K miles on it. Just this past week the Exterior Light Warning icon lit up on the instrument panel. The manual states the warning light is an indicator that at least one of the exterior lights is not working. However, I cannot find any exterior light that is not working, brake lights or other. Is this some indication of another problem, or a false warning?

Hi the sensers work of voltage drop so my first question would be have you replaced any bulbs on your car they may have a different ampere rating which will give the senser a reading thats out of its tolerance setting and the light will come on or have you had any lights fitted same applies or could be a faulty senser yates210456

Depending on what warning is on... if it's stating brake sensor then one has come loose or cable got pinched when re-installing. If it's ABS light that needs to be reset w/reset tool.

check all tire pressures if all are ok, I think you hold in the button until it resets, the button is down between the front seats. Its in a bad place because the button can stick.
