BMW e34 540i V8 Nice is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)

What a cool forum!

I just bought my lovely e34 540i V8 6sp MT
and it has a whole host of problems.....

Brake Pressure warning is on dashboard all the time.

Another yellow warning light is on just above the readout... looks like a brake light with a ring arround it ?? No idea what it is....

When i put it in reverse the parking sensor beeps but then goes straight off.... Generally doesnt seem to work...

My ASC green switch by the gear stick doesnt seem to work.... No light comes on ?

Doesnt look like haynes do a manual that covers the V8 Series does anyone know of any other good ones or pdf's they would care to email me

Appart from this everything is tip top and running a dream if anyone can help please email me on or post a responce

BMW 540i Nice...........

Nice car.

Anyway the yellow light is for traction control, if its on ALL the time it could indicate a problem. Turn off ASC and see if it goes away, the light comes on whenever ASC+T is on
