Hello coreytev , looks like you need to use an Auto-Scanner to clear this code in car system.Usually Car Service Shops Have it and they doesnt charge too much to do it, they will connect the equipment on your car and clear this "error".

SOURCE: how to shut off Brake wear sensor after pad change

If the brake pads were worn enough to activate the warning light the sensor or sensors must be replaced. There is no reset for this.

SOURCE: Brake pad wear indicator light

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.

Sounds like the computer is not powering the fan relay when the engine reaches 220 degrees. You might want to jumper the temp sensor to see it it will trigger the relay. You may need a scanner to monitor the data signal from the temp sensor.
As for the brake warning light, it can be from low brake fluid or the parking brake not being released. Either sensor or switch could have failed.

Hi amfulbodmass,

If you have tried to reset the light leaving the key on in position #2 then I would recommend performing a battery reset. Sometimes if you go a while with the brake warning on, it can cause a temporary lock up of the system. Before disconnecting the Negative battery cable for 10 seconds just remember you will need to reset your clock etc. After the battery reset, you may have to once again leave the key on in position #2 for a few minutes before the reset occurs.

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.
