It is generally known that BMW dashboard light color codes range from red, orange and yellow. Blue and green lights often relate to technology/vehicle features that are in use. 

If a red notification/light is present on your BMW dashboard, this can indicate an issue that requires an inspection and resolution ASAP! Orange and yellow BMW color codes indicate a warning, must be addressed sooner rather than later and usually aren’t as critical as red color codes. Either way, get to your nearest BMW Service Center in Berks County, PA.
