Where I do find a list of console warning symbols?

Noob on this forum and to bimmers...

After one week, my 07 525i decided to have battery issues. It is testing at 7V and has an appt at the local dealership and needs a tow to get there.

It does have enough juice, however, to keep showing a symbol that I just cannot find online anywhere - a profile view of a car with arrows over it pointing ahead and behind the car. It is not in the owner's manual and I have tried web searches to no avail. Any ideas? Anyone know where to find a comprehensive list? Thanks.

Did the Central Information Display provide any description of the symbol? Maybe the attached might help. It could be a false code since you have a low voltage issue.

I looked at the fuse chart and didn't recognize the symbol. CID had nothing since it was kaput. The last few messages were to reset the date and time, and then the startup screen showed up and then powered down. However, the last couple of times I tried to get in the car, the instrument cluster flashed orange (pixel check?) and then it showed this symbol. It was most similar to the leveling error (Fuse 52) but the arrows were larger and pointing fore and aft above the car vice up and down.

It means the transmission is in Neutral.

Thank you very much! It looks like it also means the shifter is not in Park...must have been a faulty code b/c they had to practically drag it out of the garage since the wrecker could not get the car in neutral. But that's another story.

This is a very handy pdf, thanks to the other thread for posting.
