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.

Why does the ABS light come on? and another light with a circular arrow and an exclamation mark in the centre

Lights come on in the dash to warn you of problems with various systems in your car. That ABS light is telling you there is something wrong with your ABS system and the other light is reported to be the transmission control module indicator light. You will have to get the vehicle trouble codes scanned to know for sure what's wrong with the car.

I have a bmw e46 auto and my warning light is a orange cog with a exclamation mark in middle, with this i dont have no reverse or semi auto gears, how can i fix this. thanks

this doesnt sound good. sounds like your auto box has went into safe mode, which is enough to get you too a dealer. this only happens when there is a catastrophic gear box failure.
get BMW to plug in the diagnostics, it may just need reset.

I have a bmw 520i the cog light comes up on the dash and the auto box seems like it is slipping can u help

That cog lite IS the transmission service light.

Change the fluid and filter. Don't do it yourself or have the monkeys at Jiffy Lube do it. They'll screw it up.

What is the cog shaped light in a square with an exclamation mark in the centre. On the dashboard.

Being a 318 I am assuming that your car is an automatic? This light is normally a fault indicator lamp for the transmission, on the x-series can be for the transfer box too. It is normally associated with reduced engine performance and limited or no gear change. It will require being checked by someone in the know who has the appropriate diagnostic equipment. Having been in the transmission industry- be careful! A lot of rouges out there.
