Dashboard Warning - Help please



Does anyone know what this red warning actually means ?

Is it safe for me to continue driving or should I be rushing to the garage

Any advice would be greatly appreciated please, thanks

Looks like your brake fluid is overdue for change? 03/2013 suggests march it was due for change? Should be fine to drive just needs to be changed because of the hydroscopic properties of the fluid?

Hope someone else can verify or correct me!

Thanks mate, Dave thinks it's the coolant ? I thought it could be brake fluid too ? I've got it booked at the stealers on Saturday, should get sorted then

Thanks for confirming it was okay to drive...

I was under the impression the coolant lasts the life of the engine (unless leaking) what age is your e90?

Hopefully your stealer can confirm what the fault is! Can you update me please, I'm interested

I agree, that's definitely a 'brake' symbol. Anything coolant related would be represented by something resembling a thermometer.
