Customer Question
I drive an x3 2006...
I drive an x3 2006 , recently my car has been feeling like it's stuck in*****or some kind of traction setting.
When I take left or right turns the car makes loud noise or even has jerked the car back in the OPOSITE direction , nearly causing an accident ,
The4x4 and brake light indicators then turn yellow and turn off and on
Something is def wrong and I had no warning of any issue leading to it
Could it be possible one of my indicators is stuck in the inward position?
