    A yellow "Brake" light, yellow "4x4" light, and red "Airbag" light remain illuminated on the dash of my 2008 X3. The owner's manual defines this as a "malfunction". Has anyone had a similar issue ?? I am hoping there are ways to address this issue without having the car spend a day at the dealership. Advice appreciated.

    Sounds like your steering angle sensor may have failed. Which is a huge pain to replace and requires programming.

    You are right again. Thank you. The steering angle sensor failed and needed to be replaced. Another expensive day at my local BMW dealer.
