There could be a brake booster or ABS problem. Parts should not be replaced until proven bad, it costs a lot of money to guess. If you disconnect the brake booster while the engine is running and plug the hose, that would confirm or rule out the booster. The master cylinder dosent know the engine is running or not. If the brakes drag, while the engine is running, loosen a bleeder at one of the front wheels, if that gets the wheels free, there is a hydraulic problem, and you will need to trace it to where it ends. I would consult a BMW specialist in your area. They may have seen this before.

many reasons for this. A bad relay can do it, or a wheel speed sensor can to. Also the relay may be at fault. You can have the codes checked for free at any Auto Zone and they will tell you what part is bad

your brake pads have a small sensor built in and when they contact the rotor it competes the curcuit and the light comes on your pads are worn out i suggest replacment soon or run the risk of needing new rotors
