Service Engine Light with No Other Warnings

my service engine light is on (yellow engine icon at upper right of instrument cluster).

anyone know what it may mean if no other warnings are shown on the cluster or screen?

car drives normal, with possible, most minimal misfire, but not sure.

dealer visit is in store, but wondering if anyones seen this...

Could be a laundry list of things. If you have an OBD reader you can get a good idea of what it may be.

Did you go to the iDrive and go to menu->vehicle settings->vehicle info (or something like that)? It should have a short, but perhaps meaningless blurb on it.

Very first thing I would try... Tighten your Gas Cap! Beyond that, you'll need a diagnostic read from dealer or someone who has the equipment.

Is it the Service Engine Light or Check Engine Light?
