Hello!

A sign like this dashboard light on not sure it's meaning - 30450c7.jpg indicates that your parking brake pads(shoes) are worn, and are in need of replacement.

A sign like this 937110c.jpg indicates that there is problem with the ABS system (can be anythig from a faulty wheel speed sensor to a burnt out fuse)
A non functioning ABS could bring the tires to a lock up during extreme braking which could be rather dangerous.

Hope this helps!

I have a red circle with 3 little lines in each side of the circle in dashboard light for a couple weeks and i´m worry about that because i don´t know what this mean, can somebody help me please


It is a disc brake pad indicator. It means its time to get your brakes inspected and the pads likely replaced. Normally, your front pads will wear quicker than the rear pads.

Get it checked on at your earliest opportunity. Brake jobs are cheap until you wait too long and start wearing into your brake rotors.

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.

Light on dashboard


If it's the red circle with three lines on each side, it's something related to the brakes. If I remember correctly, the lining.

It means that your brakes are worn. REMEBER: If you are going to replace them yourself remeber to also buy the brake sensor witch will be located on the on the right or the left hand side Im not sure . . . .It is just a wire connected to a sensor that clip's on the outer brake pad.
