I noticed the same thing on my '00 528i. It was driving me crazy. It actually goes off after 18 minutes, this was confirmed by my service advisor.
As to why it does this, is a mystery to every one I have asked. Maybe someone can shed some "light" on the trans indicator light?
: 97 540iA, Automatic transmission shift lever indicator light (on center console)- next to the "P" slot--- the light stays on when car is parked and everything is off. I have looked all over the owner's manual and cannot tell why the light is on, nor if it ever goes off. Any idea why this light is there and lighted when car is parked?
