BMW X2 Dashboard Lights
The BMW X2 is a sporty vehicle positioned like a coupe, yet it provides the space of a compact SUV. With its well-appointed interior, powerful performance, and well-designed exterior, the X2 is a joy to own (or lease) in Westchester County and Yonkers, NY.
As you travel around the region, you might wonder what some of those dashboard symbols mean. When they turn on, your owner’s manual can be a great resource to check out. If you’re looking for more information, BMW of Westchester invites you to view this guide to the BMW X2 dashboard lights. Schedule a service appointment today for assistance.
Check Engine Light
When the check engine light comes on, your first thought may be to have the engine inspected. While that first instinct is often the right one, this light can describe various issues in your BMW X2. If the light is flashing, the engine or its components may be misfiring. It could even be something as simple as a loose gas cap.
If the gas cap and tank appear normal, don’t rev up while driving, and bring your car in for an inspection as soon as possible. We’ll check the emissions system, turn the light off, and send you back on your way.
The word “BRAKE” in all caps may appear if the brake system is malfunctioning. This light may also turn on if the emergency brake is activated, so be sure to check the brake before you head out to work or your next adventure.
Low brake fluid can activate this light as well. This means the brake pads could be worn down too. We’ll be happy to take a look at the brake fluid and inspect the brake pads to ensure the BMW X2 is safe to drive.
Tire Pressure Light
If you see the dashboard light that looks like tire treads surrounding an exclamation point, the tire pressure light has turned on. It’s trying to tell you that pressure in at least one of the tires is below the manufacturer-recommended level. Take a tire pressure gauge out and check the pressure of all four tires. The correct tire pressure can be found in your owner’s manual or inside your driver’s side doorjamb.
Keep in mind that tires can lose a bit of air when the temperature drops. When that first frost hits, it’s not uncommon for the tire pressure light to turn on. If you add air and the light remains on, you may be dealing with a leak—let us know and we’ll do our best to repair the tire.
Engine Oil Pressure Light
The dashboard light that’s shaped like an oil can will turn on when oil pressure is low. If the light is red, pull over as soon as you can and turn the engine off. Once the engine has cooled, check to see if the oil level is where it should be using the dipstick in your vehicle. Add oil if needed.
Engine Coolant Light
Coolant is what keeps your X2 from overheating. This fluid cools the engine down, so if the light turns on, it means the engine could become damaged from overheating. Add coolant as needed or get in touch with our service team as soon as possible.
