It would help if it wasn't upside down.

I would determine if it is a Priority 1 or Priority 2 warning...you can determine this by when the warning appears (see the owners manual information below). If you can clear it by pressing the right button, then it is a Priority 2 warning. You can look at the list of Priority 1 & 2 warnings and see if you can make anything out.

If it is German, you may have the errant German warning (GURT ANLEGEN) that comes up when there's a dip in voltage....which may mean you need to check the health of your car's battery"...or "FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT""

HaHa, you've got jokes! Well, I've got answers! It says Reifenpanne which translates to flat, but it is the German version of the Tire Defect message. I found it on the M5 board. It's just a glitch, or so they say. Thanks for the info and the levity, guys.
