Brake Warning System Description and Operation
Brake System Indicators
Brake
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) illuminates the BRAKE indicator when any of the following occurs:
• The body control module (BCM) detects that the park brake is applied and sends serial data message to illuminate indicator.
• The IPC detects a low brake fluid condition.
• The electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a malfunction with the antilock brake system (ABS). The IPC receives a serial data message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
• The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 5 seconds.
Check Brake Fluid
The IPC illuminates the CHECK BRAKE FLUID indicator in the driver information center (DIC) and sends a serial data message in order to activate an audible warning when the IPC detects that the brake fluid level is below the normal operating range.

A problem with the brake system. You may have a low fluid level, or the emergency brake may be on. You should have the information in you service manual.
Here it is online.

thats your TPMS light, Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The light means that one of your tires is low on air, so check them all and fill them to the specified amount, which will be located on the drivers side door jamb.

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.

Exclamation point warning light came on...what


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )

A red exclamation point inside a circle when lit indicates your parking brake is on, or your brake fluid level is low.

Warning message


If you mean a circle that looks sort of like a gear with an exclamation mark in the middle, it represents the Transaxle fault light.
