I have a red circle with little dashes on sides of circle dashboard light on for a few days now and I am not sure what this means? Is this a break pad sensor light? And if so what is it trying to tell me?
A sign like this indicates that your parking brake pads(shoes) are worn, and are in need of replacement.
A sign like this 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.

THAT LIGHT IS EITHER THE PARKING BRAKE LIGHT WHICH MEANS YO PROBABLY PUSHED IT 1 CLICK BY MISTAKE SO PULL THE BRAKE RELEASE TO MAKE SURE,OR IT'S TELLING YOU IT'STIME TO CHANGE THE BRAKES.HOPE THIS HELPS
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.
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.
