?? Tire pressure warning light?

I'm a New member. Just bought a 2007 428i a week ago. Noticed a warning that was circular with a jagged bottom edge with exclamation mark inside. I think it refers to tire pressure. If so, after pressures are corrected (front 32/back 35psi) (correct pressures?) how do I get the light to go off?
Thanks

That's not the symbol I see. It looks like a horse shoe with jagged edges only on the bottom. Exclamation in the middle.
Thanks, tho

There is a button near the shifter - you press it or press and hold it iirc

If you car has run-flat tires it has tire monitor system, believe it was also an option for cars that didn't have the run-flat tires. The yellow warning looks like a flat tire with "!" in the center. THis indicates that one or more of the tires doesn't have the correct air pressure in them. If the car has the tire air pressure monitor system, there should be a button just under the little compartment in front of the shifter that will/should re-set the warning light (provided that one or more of the wheel sensors isn't bad). The sensors in the wheels do go bad, so if air pressure in all 4 tires is correct and the light can not be re-set, have the codes read, the codes will tell you which wheel sensor(s) are bad.

This horseshoe symbol? If so then it looks like you need a brand new transmission AND a new engine!

Did you keep the receipt?

Thanks to 'Tomoyer' for that explanation. I'll check the tire pressure & see if I can reset it.

Thanks, sorry, didn't know I was at E46. Googled the question and followed the link. (Thanks; I'm outta here.)
