If your talking about the switch that tells when your foot is pressing in the break yea just get under there and there should be a button switch with a nut you back off then remove the switch out of the brace.

I have a 2001 bmw 325i. When the brake light shows up on the dash. How do you know if it is the front or rear brakes that need replaced? Also how many brake sensors are there? Does each brake have one?


When the brake sensor light comes up it normally should show a small message on the screen which side is it, there are four sensors on each wheel and the only way to know which ones are to be replaced is to physically exam them. Take the wheel off and have a look if they are less than 5mm replace them.

Brake pad wear indicator light does not go off at the dash after changing rotors brake pads and the sensor in the front wheels all pads and rotors and the sensor is ok at rear. the vehicle has only 30000...


Did you change the sensor? if you did, do a battery reset (disconnect for 10 to 20 min.).

Obviously the wear sensor has made contact with the rotor and is already damaged. You're not even suppose to resuse the wear pad sensor if its worn or damaged anyways.The way how the sensor works is that it must make contact to the rotor to complete the wear pad light indicator circuit. There is no mentioning that he replaced the the wear pad sensor with a new one.

But if one did replaced the wear pad sensor and the wear pad indicator is lit up, the way to reset it is to leave the key on in ignition switch #2 or #1 for about 30sec. turn it off and its reset.

Its possible that you forgot to replace the brake light sensors. They are about 15 bucks, and have to be replaced in order for that light to turn off. You can either get them from the dealer where they'll likely charge you 3 times as much, or you can go to http://www.turnermotorsport.com and get them there.

You have to reset the light by leaving the ignition switch on position #2 for about 30 sec. turn off the ignition and start the engine up and see if it goes out. I recommend buying a new wear pad sensor as well because now light will lit up when you're way below spec (less than 3mm)

Also, you could try with this procedure for one E39: Turning off the Check Brake Linings warning on the Instrument Cluster...
- so you've just changed the brake pads on your E39, along with the wear sensors. The old sensor(s) needed replacement cause you waited a bit too long before changing the pads, and wore through the sensor(s), turning on the BRAKE light on the dash. But wait, the light is still on? But there's a new sensor installed... what gives?!
- there is a procedure required in order to turn off the light/warning. With the ignition off, step on and hold the brake pedal. Now, while holding the brake pedal down, turn on the ignition switch to position 2 (just before cranking). Hold the brake pedal until the BRAKE light is off. Tada, the warning is gone and reset.

NOTE: This procedure worked on a 2001 E46 325i. It took about 15-20 seconds, but it cleared out w/o having to unhook the battery.

01 Bimmer 530i could someone guide me to replace Fr Brake Sensors


It should be in the front left inboard brake pad. You jack up the car, remove the front left wheel, and pull it out of the top of the brake pad backing plate. there is a metal spring clip around it that holds it in there snugly, but it should pull out. Then unthread the wire back up to the little box where the plug is. Be carefull pulling the plug apart. Don't pull it by the wires or you may pull the plug off the end of the wire on the car side, and you will end up soldering the new sensor (and all subsequent sensors) onto the wire,
Are you replacing the sensor without replacing the pads? Why?

Bmw 320d e46 2001 orange brake wornin light stay on replaced brake pads and installed new sensor in front back sensor looks ok


the way to reset the brake light is to turn the key to "on" without turning the car on. Let it sit there for 15-30 seconds and the light should go off by itself. If not, double check how you have the sensors hooked up.

Z3 brake light sensor


lay on your back in the drivers side and look up... it should be located just behind the brake pedal... move the brake pedal by hand and you should see the switch move

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.
