Thanks but how do I clear the symbols - picture on screen shows a car on a ramp but doesn't stay illuminated?

that has nothing to do with Fgsstnre


you can try to reset it with the process below


if it wont reset, unhook the battery for an hour and try again. If it still won't reset, then there is a fault and BMW will need to scan the car.
