Sensor light come on after brake replacement

Brakes on my 05 cooper S were recently replaced. Almost immediatly after, the ABS and other lights came on. A few weeks after the passenger side air bag came on too. Could this be caused by the brake replacement?

Yes and NO...it could be the wheel sensor was not hooked up or damaged during the brake servicing....but the air bag problem is probably not related...a proper diagnosis would require that the codes be retrieved from the computer then go from there.

SOURCE: air bag light

there is a wire that is attached via your seatbelt latch that runs under the seat.
It will make a "DING" sound when the seatbelt is unlatched and the the door is open.
Find the wire and pull it out then complete the circuit by wrapping the 2 wires together and maybe throw a little tape on em!
Bam !!!
prob solved.

Or you could just pull the fuse for that sensor. haha

One method describes just turning the key to position 2 and giving it about 30 seconds and that it will reset on its own. A manual method is described here:

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights

SOURCE: My third brake light is out and needs replacing

If I remember correctly, you need to pop off the plastic trim panel on the inside of the trunk to access the wiring. Just unplug it after removing all the screws and it should come out.

I recently replaced all the brakes on my 2002 Chevy S10 P/U Truck & both the ABS Light & the Brake Lights periodically come on. This was happening even before I replaced the brake pads & shoes. I heard that there may be some sequence of steps I can preform in order to solve this problem. Would you please help me?

I live in Oakland, CA. Recently, my barke service light is now illumiates, which could be from several reasons, according the the Mini Cooper Manual. When I locate a repair shop that I trust, how much...


First check brake fluid level. If it is low, the light will come on. Top off the master cylinder with fluid. With ABS systems there may be just a sensor out. Ask a repair man to run a test of the system.

Mini cooper Warning lights for abs, low tire,traction comes on


Ok, check the brake fluid level for a start. This could mean a few things. Your brake pads might be worn down, which would bring a yellow warning light on(triangle), at the same time with the pads being low it will have displaced the fluid, making the level low, this would be a red light on. Now because of this the body control module has detected these faults, will have turned the abs off, hence the abs light.
If brake fluid is low, this could confirm my theory.
If its low, top up with dot 5 brake fluid and take to garage to have new pads fitted.
