I have a 2009 328i. The symbol that looks like a light bulb with an exclamation point in the middle is showing....I looked in my online manual but can't find that symbol....does anyone know what it stands for?

Thanks

You have a bad (external, if it's the one below) light bulb. Mine showed the same symbol even though all the lights were functioning. It turned out to be high resistance in one of the rear sockets.

From page 160 in my manual:

Thanks because I checked all the lights and everything is working great....no bulbs appear to be out....
The questionable sockets are a known issue (earlier models were covered under SIB-63-02-08 ). If you're still under warranty, they should be able to knock it off fairly quickly.

Interesting .... we had exactly this on the 328i ...... dash warning with no bulbs visibly out ..... dealer fixed under warranty.

I got the bulb warning the other day - was driving me nuts. Couldn't find any exterior lights out.

Found a web site that explained to hold in the stalk button when you are in the check control menu on the warning, to get the CCID number. Also had a link to a web page that had every CCID code and it's specific meaning (not just bulbs, but all of the warnings). I'd share the link but am traveling and it's in my favs on my home PC.

But I'm sure a google search would turn it up.

In my case, it correctly told me that the code was for a bad "license number" light. Sure enough, one of the plate lamps was burned out.
