    Right this is my first BMW and I have no clue as I've moved from vauxhall,
    I've bought a CAT D 320i E92 and I've only just got it running today. Now there is some warning lights on the dash, the first is a triangle with a exclaimation mark inside the triangle with an anti-clockwise arrow around the triangle with a exclaimation mark to the right of it. The next is the handbreak light. Then I take the handbreak off the light goes from red to yellow. I have no idea what these mean or any suggestions on how to get rid of them. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks Max

    First thing to do is get fault codes read.

    The yellow one is something to do with the dsc (traction control)

    Red one is a fault with the braking system, these two will be related.

    As i said need to check fault codes

    You would need to get it to a garage or you can buy the lead and software off ebay to do it yourself
