: Do none of these guys have an owners manual....Every BMW That I've owned from 318's to 735's (all late 70's to late 80's) with check lights do exactly the same....If its that anoying, buy a 525e cos standard they dont have the check system, hence...no probs!
I'm not familiar with the 525e, but my 528e ('88, US spec) had the check feature. As did every other BMW I've driven from the '80s with the check feature.
Think of it for a second. The light comes on to get you to "CHECK" the brake lights. You press the brake pedal, they check out fine, and the warning light goes out. Pretty nifty, huh?
