But sometimes even the most diligent car owner can face the dreaded dashboard symbols. These lights are designed to inform you of a service or maintenance need that your vehicle has.

Common Dashboard Symbols

If one or more of the dashboard symbols is illuminated in your BMW vehicle, you may be concerned that something is terribly wrong. But rest assured, many of the BMW dashboard symbols simply indicate a necessary service. Here are a few of the most common:

Check Engine Light: This usually indicates a problem with the vehicle's emissions system. It could also mean that your gas cap isn't on correctly. Ask your local BMW service center to read the code to learn more about the problem. 

Check Battery Light: This indicates an issue with the vehicle's charging system. It could simply mean that your car battery needs to be replaced or it could be something more serious. Ask your local BMW service center to check the charging system energy output to determine the source of the problem. 

Check Oil Light: This light indicates that it's time to get an oil change or that the oil pressure has suddenly dropped. Check the oil level and if it seems to be at the correct level, ask your local BMW service center to check the system to ensure that the light is working correctly.
