    Please Help!

    Hi I have BMW E53 X5 3L PETROL I went to fill up the other day and never switched off the engine, filled up as usual 40£ shortly after my engine light came on, as you look at the dash the bottom left hand corner it looks like a block like looking symbol illuminated in yellow, she runs fine no difference in performance any ideas as to why this light could have come on is it cuz air has got into the tank? Winch in case tripped off the computer??? sensor problem ?

    Any easy fixes it is booked in for a diagnostic report though really do need some advice before she goes in today?

    How can I reset it

    Hi Many thanks for your reply, ::

    In the picture illustration you've given it is the very last symbol on the list you've given jus above the picture of the dash picture.

    on the x5 the light is now fixed on and illuminated in yellow

    there can be many reasons why that light comes on
    the fact that the light is yellow means its not to serous
    diagnostics are now needed

    hi ok thanks that's much appreciated it is booked in for a diagnostic report today, given the fact I'm really lazy and when I gassed her up, I never switched her off so could you think I have tripped something on her brain resulting in this light coming on ( ie air in the fuel line somewhere) guess work in know! I guess I'm gonna know the answer.. get the check done it could anything
