Just bought a 00 BMW coupe. Lovely car but it has an intermittent total system fail light on the dash.
It usually occurrs when the car is cold. You start car and all dash warning lights remain on (orange) including the Orange Triangle one which indicates total system fail , according to the handbook.
I found out that the AST does not work when this light is on and makes for interesting driving in the wet. Help.
One other symtom is the brake pad replacement light which has remained on all the time , the previous owner saying that it was not reset after a mechanic chaged the pads.
After driving for some time the warning light may go off. Or if I switch the car off and restart it may also go off.....
Any ideas ????
