BMW DASHBOARD WARNING LIGHTS


Schedule Service AppointmentContact Us

DASHBOARD INDICATOR LIGHT GUIDE

The main medium for your BMW to communicate with you is through the BMW dashboard warning lights or BMW dashboard symbols. It is important to understand the meaning of these illuminated symbols. Please note that BMW dashboard warning lights may differ slightly in design between the various models.

Refer to the BMW dashboard indicator guide below for the meaning of all the BMW indicator lights, so you can understand your BMW’s updates and needs.

As BMW dashboard symbols illuminate, take notice to the various colors that communicate the priority level of the warning. The meaning and priority of BMW dashboard indicator colors are listed below:

  • Red – Communicates a warning that requires immediate attention.
  • Orange and Yellow – Designates a warning that is not critical but requires attention as soon as possible.
  • Blue and Green – Indicates the BMW features or technology that is currently active.

Important BMW Dashboard Warning Lights And BMW Dashboard Symbols To Know

  • Turn signal is on.
  • Short headlamps and stop lights are on.
  • Either the parking, brake, rear fog, turn signal, interior, or license plate lamps are faulty.
  • High-beams are active.
  • Fog lamp is on.
  • Battery charge BMW dashboard warning lights indicate no charge in the battery, caused by either a dead battery, faulty battery, an alternator malfunction.
  • Warns of a drop in engine oil pressure.
  • Warns the engine is overheated.
  • Indicates an engine issue and your BMW needs service. If you are blinking, the issue is more serious.
  • Indicates that your BMW is in park.
  • Warns of low tire pressure.
  • Warns there is a brake system issue.

Your safety is our priority, which is why we stress to not take the BMW dashboard warning lights lightly. It’s important to familiarize yourself with this BMW light guide.

Remember, if the BMW dashboard symbols are orange or green, schedule a service appointment at your earliest convenience. If any of the lights are red, stop everything and immediately take your car to our BMW Service Department, because nothing is more important than your safety.
