2004 BMW X3 Q&A

2004 BMW X3 Question: warning lights

Three warning lights came on when I started the car; the automatic transmission, the yellow BRAKE, and the dynamic stability control. I drove it home, 5 miles, and the brakes grabbed but otherwise I did not have any issues. What is going on and how could three things go wrong at one time? -
Answer 1
The E83 electrical system consists of several BUS networks and it seems you have a fault in the powertrain can bus. Has your transfer case oil ever been changed? Possible faulty transfer case motor or your DME/DDE, DSC, EGS and VTG require programming and coding -
Answer 2
Had similar problem and took it to dealer. It was the low voltage. They charge the battery and did not have similar since. -
