Mine flases that as well. The first time was after it rained and then it went away. But now it comes on all the time. What should i do? BMW said check the fuses? i didnt think it was anything to care about.

Really common problem, check the FAQs it's in there somewhere.

I actually just fixed mine today, it was kind of a headache at first. It took me around 2 hours only cause i had to drive back tot he dealership. It was probably about a total of 40 or 50 mins of work.

Well, it was worth it cause i don't got anymore annoying lights in my dash on B)

It's this little switch that's on the top of the brake pedal, search the FAQs that's where I found it.

Mine does this every once in a while, maybe once a month. If I shut the car off and restart it, it stops. I read the FAQ on how to fix it, but I dont know if I should mess with it, it's not THAT bad.
