Unknown Service Light ?

Anyone know what this means?



It's the one throwing my service light, and I have no idea what it means. Don't have my owners manual handy either

I think that is "driveability" monitor... NO idea what it means. Even in the owners manual it is rather cryptic.

Oh nice, you have the same car I do ('06 325i). My understanding is that I need to do an exhaust emissions test whenever I re-register my car. Do I actually need to do anything for this, or just reset?

If you arent due for inspection/emissions I'd simply reset it. If I remember correctly, you can set it to the month your actually due as a reminder.

Does anyone have the link to the sheet that describes what these symbols are?

I should've printed it out the first time I saw it, and now can't find it again.

This icon is for notification/reminder for a yearly safety inspection if mandated by the State you live in (USA). The date is programmable. However, as I found out, the icon only comes up at the end of the month you set it to, not the beginning of the month. It is best to set the date to the month BEFORE your annual inspection is due. So if your annual inspection is due in May, set the reminder for April; on April 30th the notification will come on.
