Check ABS system for codes. I have an '03 Silverado and have a faulty EBCM( Electronic Brake Control Module, "ABS module"). Can't reset anything. Only replacement of EBCM will fix it. Incidentally, if you have to replace it, you can check on Ebay for a rebuilt unit. You shouldn't have an issue with your "base" braking system though, if this is the case. ABS is electronically controlled and with or without it, your brakes will still function. I hope this helps.

I just had my rear brake pads & sensors replaced. How do I get the light off ( reset) ?


You can not simply reset the light, you have to actually replace the brake sensor wire that connects to the rear brakes. This is a sensor that is worn through, when the brakes get low, the sensor rubs the rotor and breaks the connection, turning on the light. You need to get a new sensor from a dealer and replace the brakes and sensor together to get the light off.

After replacing the wire as stated do the following to reset the light and mileage countdown timer.


To enter this mode, with ignition on, hold the odo reset button (located on the left side of the instrument panel under the tach) for about 10 seconds.

The center of the info display will change to "service". It will have an icon for which service feature and the miles/date left until service is required. These icons are the same as displayed on the I-drive service screen. So, you can go through the Idrive service screen to get familiar with the icons prior to doing this.


Once in this mode, push the reset button to cycle through the various service items.

To reset a service item that is displayed, hold the reset button. I don't remember how long, but the display will change to a reset mode. You must release the button once it enters this reset mode. Then you will need to confirm the reset by pressing the reset button again.

The reset service interval will then be changed.

You can continue pressing the reset button to scroll through the other icons.

I think to exit, simply shut off the ignition.

The esp light went on first and then the glow plug warning sign on my 2005 TDi passat. said workshop assistance, what is the problem


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS & ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.
tdisline_516.jpg
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: brake pedal switch, front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning sign went ON after ESP warning light. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road.
Good Luck!
