SOURCE: I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission

The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

SOURCE: Just replaced my front disc brakes & sensors on my 2008 328i BMW

That warning light is only supposed to come on when they touch metal, and when you take it away from the metal, it is supposed to shut off. You might have to pull a lead off the battery to get it to reset. Check the sensors, make sure the tips are not touching anything. Then do the battery thing.. Hope this helps.

Traction control uses several things to work probably including brakes, wheel speed sensors, etc. If only the Trac off light is on then there is a problem with the traction control system.

Steering angle sensor resetting


Have to reset the angle sensor, I would guess

Have to check for codes & data with professional scanner,
in enhanced mode

If you changed the rack, it has to be aligned,the shop should
do what is necessary

A 5 year old vehicle should not need any of that work for years
---so why are those parts worn out?

You do both lower ball joints, not one side,like when you do a
wheel hub bearing, you do both sides

How to reset sensor


The steering angle sensor is faulty and should be replaced. Once replaced it will need to be coded with a special tool. There is not a way to reset the sensor without the special tool.

My tire low indicator is on,also brake light is on orange color and traction control light is on any idea what can be bad.


All three of these systems us the speed sensors at the wheels. There are toothed wheels inside the front brake rotors and on the rear axle, There are magnetic sensors mounted near the toothed wheels. If anything has hit a sensor or toothed wheel and damaged it or the sensor wire, the three systems you mentioned will set error codes.

RESET LIGHTS


if all three lights came on at once there is definety an issue with the dynamic stability control (DSC). my first thought was steering angle sensor, but it could be many things such as DSC control unit, wheel speed sensor, or even the brake fluid low
