Have you checked the wiring to the sensors. the plugs on them can become damaged. use a paper clip and linc the holes and check the light has gone out do this on both front wheels. find which one is at fault. dont do both at same time but you can have both wheels off at the same time to save time.

He didn't replace the brake wear sensor(s). They usually run about $15. They have a wire that gets worn in two when the linings get low.

Audi a6 quattro brake warning


This is my take on the problem. The factory setting for the brake travel at the caliper is what triggers the warning, just because there is pad left (not to thr rivets) does not mean the pads are ok .
I would try backing the travel on the caliper to the far open pisition then reset the computer start the car do not touch the brake pedel
the light should be out. if this works replace the pads.

2010 Vauxhall Astra H (1.4 sxi) Air con previously not working. Had car re-gassed, still no joy. In Opcom Aircon was set to not activated. Changed this to "with clutch setting" an Aircon working now:-) ...


air cont flow sensor may have failed cannot remember on 1.4 model but on 2.0 model its on the left side of the engine. it could be this. a/c dont usually have codes to store. accelerator code is the sensor on the intake on the side. prob just needs cleaning mark were it fits with a pen and take off. on op side there is a hole spray some wd40 in the hole cover it and shack it around . then tip out and leave to dry. then put back on. should be fine then.

Fault code P2106


is it the ecotec engine fitted 1.8 or 2.0./2.2l or the diesel 1.7 engine.. how long have you not used the air con for. not using it for a long time you can damage the pump the flown sensor. even the temperature sensor. but if the engine is trying to stall with the ac on then the pump may have a fault. ac should be run for 10min once a week no matter the weather. stops you having problems later.

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.

Anti-lock dash warning illuminated


check brakes fluid level and also check to see if the sensor was connect back after the pads was change. If all is ok then take it to Auto Zone and they will scan it and clear the code for free also you can clear the code by disconnecting the negative battery lead for 10 seconds but this might make your radio ask for a code in order to play it. good luck

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.
