Hi
 
I have a light that comes on my dashboard intermittently for the past few days. its not the EML light but its next to it. Its a square, yellow with a bottle neck and what looks like water inside it? Could this be my radiator water needs topping up? I noticed that it comes on when its cold and after a few mimutes it dissappears, any ideas?
 
Oh its a 2005 318i Coupe. if i call BMW they always ask me to bring it in and they arent exactly around the corner
 
thanks in advance

Sorry to state the obvious but have you checked in your manual?

Does it look like the fourth one down on the left?


In which case it's the cooling system that is low on water, when the engine warms up the water expands so it sounds like a likely candidate, you need to check the level, when topping up make sure that you use a proper mix of water and anti-freeze.




Think about what you can do for the club, not what it can do for you...
