It means turn the key to "Accessory" or "Run" position.

"KL" in bimmerspeak refers to the ignition "terminal" positions. For many, the terms "run" & "accessory" still raises questions...because it doesn't plainly explain which ignition positions they are for those that don't refer to their owners manual for better clarification.

Below is some simple explanation:
  • KL 0 = OFF (ignition off position)
  • KL R = ignition position 1 ("run" - some electonics & modules are powered up)
  • KL 15 = ignition position 2 ("accessory" - all electronics & modules re powered)
  • KL 30 = ignition position 3 (where the ignition defauts after starting the engine)
  • KL 50 = ignition start position

I've never owned a BMW with a start button...so my suggestion would be to check your owners manual for any clarification or explanation of how or when the vehicle is in the "run" state. My guess would be sometime between inserting the fob thingy that would be considered the "key"... and when you press the START button. Or perhaps when you press the brake for those that have the CAS option where you don't have to insert the fake key thingy.

If you push the start button once without the foot on the brake (smart key fob in the car), you will have some electronics runnings, if you push the start button twice without foot on the brake, you will have everything on.

Great...must add this to my mental rolodex...I'm sure some day in the future...I may own a BMW that has a START button.
