If you're the proud owner of a 2016 BMW 7 Series, you know the importance of regular maintenance. But even the most caring driver around Queens, Bronx, and Manhattan can have one of those dreadful dashboard lights come on. But what exactly do those lights mean? 

The team at BMW of Manhattan has taken the time to put that information together for you right here. Check it out and then schedule a service appointment, if necessary.

Red Lights

The 2016 BMW 7 Series has a group of red lights designed to let you know that immediate attention is required. These lights include the following:

  • Airbag System: The airbag system and seat belt tensioner aren't working, which means you could be at risk in the event of a collision.
  • Brake System: The braking system has been disrupted. You can continue to drive the vehicle, but be sure to drive moderately and not at high speeds. 

If any of these lights illuminates in your BMW 7 Series, head to your local BMW service center immediately and have the vehicle inspected and repaired.

Yellow Lights

The 2016 BMW 7 Series has a group of yellow lights designed to let you know that your attention is required as soon as possible. These lights include the following:

  • Anti-Lock Braking System: The anti-lock feature of the braking system isn't currently functioning. The brakes will still work, but it may take longer to brake. Get the vehicle checked out immediately.
  • Flat Tire Monitor: One or more of your tires is significantly underinflated. Slow down the vehicle and stop cautiously as soon as possible and inflate the necessary tire(s).
  • Engine Function: The engine function has been disturbed. This could be as simple as a loose gas cap or it could be as severe as the engine overheating. Get the vehicle checked out at your local BMW service center as soon as possible.
