SOURCE: how to reset the break

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.

You have an alternator or battery concerne,low voltage caused all the other problems,Start with a battery,then have alternator tested.The failsafes are designed to keep from burning up solenoids and other electronic components.

pretty quick. but be sure it the alternator. You can test it by starting the car then unplugging the battery. If it cuts off when you unplug it it's the alternator if it keeps running it's not the problem

When indicating left the indicator flashes twice as quickly as normal.Before that a week before I had " Engine failsafe prog. "message on.But it disappiered.Car goes normally.Just that indicator.


You will find that one of your left indicator globes have blown, when replacing make sure you put in the correct wattage, if your globes happen to be all working than you will find it has a bad earth connection which will require tracing of the wires, recommend and auto electrician for this.

BMW X5 2004 TRANS FAILSAFE PROG


Hi; If I get the 'Trans Failsafe Prog" message twice within about 2 hours, The SES light will go on automatically. Since I do not seem to have any real transmission problems, this SES message clears itself in about 24 hours. The "Trans Failsafe Prog" messageseems to be used to indicate other transmission problems as well, like loss of transmission fluid, so be careful. I have a 2002 X5. Cheers. Omer
