PROBLEM : I was drying my car yesterday seen red light symbol on dashboard. After driving some distance, I observed some smoke was coming out from the engine and car stopped. And also some sound from the engine(May be its belt or some other. Technically I don't know that)
I towed my car to near by service station(not BMW)
Can you please help me to understand what could be the reason for this problem?
Your answer is most helpful for me

Hi: Were you able to identify what the symbol was on the dash? Was the engine overheating? Was it an electrical issue? What color was the smoke?
