that is when the tires skid. if you have ever skidded when pressing too hard con the gas or turning, it will come on.
When you turn the car on it lights up for a second just like the rest of the dashboard. hope this helps

I have this dashboard light, it's like a red horseshoe with an exclaimation point in it. I don't have an owners manual, so I don't know what it means, does anyone else know?

Do you have 'Run-flat tires'equipped with you vehicle?

This light comes on in my car Yellow when I had a nail in my tire it is the flat tire monitor.

This is as close as I can make it look.

I recently bought a 1999 323i BMW and although the guy gave me two repair manuals he didn't give me a owners manual. It took me a while to figure out most of the car buttons but don't know what any of the dash lights are. Does anyone have a extra manual kicking around or is willing to take the time to tell me what these are? I still haven't figured out what the vent on the center of the dash does other than if I want cool air I roll it to the blue side and hot air to the red side. Do I need to turn this every time I use the heat or only when I want it to come out of that particular vent?

One of the dashboard lights on my 1995 318i is now on all the time. It is a circle with 3 dots to the left of the circle and 3 dots to the right of the circle (the dots are evenly spaced from each other, and follow the shape of the circle). The light in question is directly to the right of the ABS light. I cannot find the owner's manual. Can you tell me what this could possibly mean?
Thanks and best regards,

I think this means that your windshield wiper fluid is out and you need to fill it with more.
