Hi guys need a bit of help

I had my oil warning that I was low and top up which I done
Around the same time the yellow engine warning light came up on the dash

I have done the onboard check and it's ok no faults I have gone into I drive and again no faults
I done have a fault reader to see if any codes come up

What does the yellow engine light mean

Any help I will be so gratefull

Cheers
Lee

Most likely your 15000 miles oil change service interval is coming up. Check in the I Drive. Probably no one has reset it when you get your oil changed.

Next time you are running, press and hold the Check button on the turn stalk. It will show the stored messages in the iDrive. If there are not, is says "Check OK" or "All Systems OK" or something like that.

The other thing you can do is open up the "i" menu--straight down on the iDrive button. It should show the M-settings menu. Then navigate to the Service Intervals and see if any are yellow (due soon) or red (overdue).

As a last resort, crack open your Owner's Manual!

Maybe the following list of check control symbols might help.
