2003 X5 3.0i P indicator

I've seen other posts here about the gear indicator staying on, but people waited and it went off. Mine won't do that. It just stays on. I was thinking it could have been a fuse, but I have no idea other than that. I'm pretty sure there are some fuses missing because if i'm not mistaken, there are supposed to be daytime running lights and the locks are supposed to lock once the vehicle is moving, and neither of those work.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Some X5's turn off the light and go to sleep and others just go to sleep and leave the light on. There are many options model wide and worldwide that those empty fuse holders (and the empty relay slots) that would feed those options.
As far as DRL's and lock once moving are concerned a quick trip to the $tealer and the options can be turned on. Some charge for one hour of time some do not or you could buy one of the computer based software packages on ebay and do it yourself.
