How to reset Cadillac brake pads warning light

Just had brake pads replaced and mechanic supposedly reset the warning light twice...but it still comes on. Is there a way for ME to reset this warning light?, or must it be done by a mechanic (i.e. equipment required)? Thanks.

SOURCE: On a 1999 cadillac deville I replaced the front

Try disconnecting the battery fo at least 60 seconds, this will manually re-set the computer. It will sometimes take a day or so for the light to go out. If it has ABS find a dead end street and get up to 40-45 MPH and slam on the brakes and check that everything is ok. That's the only way to properly check and not endanger any people. Good luck.

2014 Ghibli. If I replace brake pads and discs does brake warning light turn off by itself or need to be reset?


If you're talking about brake pads that have an electrical connector..
the warning light comes on when the pad is so worn that it allows the electrical connector to earth via the disk .. hence the warning light.

Fitting new pads will not cause a warning light on your dashboard. No reset required.

How do i reset the change brake pads warning


Are you referring to the red "BRAKE" light on the dash? If so, that light illuminates when the level in the brake fluid reservoir gets below a certain point. Once the pads are replaced and the fluid pushed back in the reservoir the light will go out on it's own.

ABS warning light coming on and off intermitently


You need to have the brakes checked. While the light is blinking, it is not too serious. When it does not go off, then is when the brake pads need replacement and possibly new rotors. Salt from the hiway during cold weather. Can cause the brake system to "get dirty" or leaking fluid. Fix them ASAP. If one wheel runs very sluggish, and the pads are bad, the wheel on the other side is contaminated bt dirt, sand , fluid etc.

Brake pad warning light on


If the pads were replaced by non-audi aftermarket pads they may not have the pad sensor and this will cause the warning light to come on.

I replaced the front pads on a VW JETTA 2.5 and the check pads light is on. How can I reset the check pads light?


As the brake pads wear, the brake pad wear sensor contained in the brake pad contacts the brake rotor. This causes the sensor to fail. When a pad wear sensor fails it opens the ground circuit of the pad wear warning light system causing the pad wear warning light to illuminate. Perform normal brake service to correct this condition and be sure to replace the brake pads with pads containing wear sensors. Once the brake pads and wear sensors are replaced, reset the brake pad warning system by turning the ignition switch to the "on" position. As long as continuity to ground exists through all the brake pad wear sensors the system should reset and the pad warning light in the dash will go out. If the pad warning light does not go out, a check of the pad warning circuit for an open circuit condition or poor ground must be performed.

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.
