BMW X3 Dashboard Light Symbols

Dashboard warnings on your BMW X3 depend on the BMW Problem. It could be an indicator light for ABS, airbag, engine light or something else. There are many reasons why the dashboard shows warning lights and below is a list of the lights on the dashboard. You might need to buy a scanner online which will show BMW trouble codes & reset the warning light for good!
If you need to reset a dashboard light or diagnose a fault on your BMW X3 E83 we would advise you to go for the iCarsoft i910. Its an extremely popular choice amongst BMW owners worldwide because it covers such a wide range of modules within the vehicle and has received excellent feedback from buyers.

If you need a new sensors to fix your BMW X3 such as ABS sensor, MAF, camshaft & crankshaft, visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk.

BMW X3 EML light, or commonly known as engine management light. The light is connected to the engine electronics module and if illuminated indicates an error with this module.

BMW X3 Engine Warning Light - this warning light is effectively exactly the same at the 'SERVICE ENGINE SOON' light above. Depending on where you bought your BMW X3 you will either see this light, or the one above.

BMW X3 airbag warning light - if this warning light illuminates during normal operating conditions it indicates a problem within the airbag mosule. It does not mean that an airbag needs to be replaced, it could be a loose connection that has caused the error. You can find the airbag trouble code by using one of our BMW airbag reset tools & we recommend using the iCarsoft i910. Our reset tools are designed to give you the trouble code & reset the airbag warning light on your dashboard. Here you can watch a video of the i910 tool resetting the BMW airbag light.

BMW X3 ABS warning light - illuminates when there is a problem within the ABS system. More often than not this lights up due to a faulty ABS sensor which can often be full of dirt from the road, it is possible to clean the ABS sensor, but the chances are your cleaning will not last for long and will need to be replaced soon after that. You can diagnose which ABS sensor is faulty by using the iCarsoft i910. Since you took the time to remove the ABS sensor (which is no easy task for the home mechanic) you may aswell change your ABS sensor. You can find replacement ABS sensors @ Dominator Auto Diagnostics. Here you can watch a video of the i910 diagnose a BMW ABS Light problem. The guide shows the scanner working on the E46, but works in the same way on all other models.

BMW X3 ABS warning light - See above. Depending on where you bought your BMW your ABS light may differ, but means exactly the same as the ABS light above.

BMW X3 Service Engine Soon warning light - If illuminated steady it indicates that there is a fault within the emission system & needs to be investigated by using a BMW trouble code scanner such as the iCarsoft i910. You can still drive your X3 with care though until the problem is found & fixed. If the light flashes or blinks it indicates a serious misfire and you should contact your local workshop as soon as possible.

BMW X3 oil warning light - if illuminates when driving it means that the oil level is at the absolute minimum and needs to be topped up as soon as possible.
