: Is this normaL for the rear brake light check indicator to go on in the instrument panel once the key is on the 2 postiton. Is the car just checking itself. It goes away once I step on the brake. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million. BTW I just picked up my car last Friday and I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT :)

BMW brake check light has always come on at start up showing the systems check is operational.
Once the brake pedal is stepped on, it should go out.
If engine check light comes on, check the gas cap first as they have a fuel vapor recovery system to comply with the clean air act.
Your system is normal and no cause for worry.
Enjoy the car, you made a great choice! BC
