Question about 2005 BMW 1 Series
Hi, I got service reminders to change my rear brake pads. I did this and lights were still on. My garage suggested changing the front ones as well... So I did, and lights still on. They then suggested unplugged battery for an hour or so. That has not worked. Do you know of any override I can perform, before calling BMW???
Did you change the brake pad wear sensors in the front and rear pads as well? you may have a bad connection or broken wire to the wear sensors on one of the wheels. sometimes there is a sensor on each wheel and sometimes just 1 front side and 1 rear side, the sensor has a single wire and they slide into the inside brake pads, if your brakes wear down to the point of hitting this sensor you need to replace it and they are pretty cheap about $25 for all four you may just try changing them first before spending $80 at the dealer for an hour diagnosis, if you figure anything out let me know so i can help, good luck and please rate this -Jeff
