Exclamation WARNING Lights on 1997 328i

Does anybody have a detailed description of all possible kinds of warning lights that appear on the panel (1997 328i)?

I have two couple of warning lights (follow the attachment) that are on now. 1st one, I was told indicates ASC failure. Not sure about the second one.. could anybody let me know. Also, if you could let me know how I can get it fixed, that will be great. Thanks

Thanks for the reply superdeadman. Yeah, it looks like thats a brake pad issue. Do you know where I can find an owner's manual (online) or a list of all these warning signs?

There is no electronic version of the E36 manual. BMW started providing the manual online for E46s and newer...

The first light, if surrounded by an open circle with an arrow tip on one end, is your ASC+T (Automatic Stability Control + Traction) light. It will be on whenever you have disengaged ASC+T (via the green button in the center console); it will illuminate intermitently whenever the ASC+T kicks in; or it may be indicating an ASC+T failure.

The second light is the brake pad wear sensor. If the light is on, your front pads, or rear pads, or both need to be replaced very soon.

Best of luck with the BM, and welcome to werkz.
