noobe needs help

Thanks for all your help on thefan blades I have one more issue I can seem to locate the answer

97 328iconvertable automatic
Problem there is a red light iluminating on the dash looks like a circle with thre dots on each side of it
the guy I bought it from said its the oil change reminder
but I could not find that in the book it just mentions the green and yellow row of lights so I tride the pin 7 and 19 trick to reset and that didnt work

I think I have figured it out to the brake pad warning only its red not yellow the guy said it had new brakes so maybe it needs to be reset any help with that or do I need a reset tool Thanks all
Thanks

Hey! Charliedana! That is the brake wear indicator light, Brake pad wear sensors, there is one in the front & one in the rear! It either means your brake linings are low or the brakes were replaced and the indicators were left hanging! The right thing to do is to check your brakes, if they are good, then you can either replace the indicators, they attatch on the pad itself or the light can be reset by touching them to ground & then taping them off at the ends & secure them in a safe place! That's what I did, until I got new ones.......
