Default Tach Warm Up Lights Illuminate at High RPM

Any thoughts as to what might be causing this? Car seems to run fine, but when I get into it, at about 6500-7000 all the warm up lights illuminate until I throw a shift.

Anybody else encounter this? Thoughts as to what might be causing it before I take it into the shop?

Thanks in advance

Geo

SMG transmission? I'm almost certain those came with shift lights, which use the same lights as the warm up lights.

What is happening is, you are getting warnings that are based on the inverse reactive current, for use in unilateral phase detractors. It's what happens when the car is no longer capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. The only way to fix this is to replace the faulty part with BMW's replacement encabulator, which works by producing power by the modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive diractance instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, which the original part had (that used an attbase plate of prefabulated amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the panametric fan). This is why you are getting the warning lights.

The replacement part consists of six hydrocoptic marzelvanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft that sidefumbling was effectively prevented. The main winding was of the normal lotus o-deltoid type placed in panendermic semiboloid slots of the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible tremie pipe to the differential girdlespring on the ‘up’ end of the grammeters. Moreover, whenever fluorescence score motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocation dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration. We are talking full motor tear-down and rebuild here. I hope your car is under warranty and not your daily driver. Best of luck.
































































No. I'm just kidding. They are shift lights. Shift right when they all turn red.
Would love to hear the conversation that takes place had you brought your car to the shop.
