How to reset sensor

I have a 2008 bmw z4. Two months ago brake light and traction control light came on. I put it in the shop and they reset the steering angle sensor. The same problem has reoccured. Instead of taking it back to the shop. How do i reset the steering angle sensor myself?

Steering angle sensor can only be reset with a special diagnostic tool. Sorry.

My Trac off light came on 2002 Toyota solar .just had full brake service 3 months ago


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.

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.

I have 3 sensor lights that came on at the same time. The brake light,tire pressure light, and the ABS light(I think). A friend had a portable diagnostic computer and plugged it in. No problems...passed....


there area magnitude of things that can be the issue here. I wil take a chance here and say that there is an issue with a couple of sensors. This situation involves 1. The brake light sensor (which indicates that i brake light bulb is faulty) 2. The Tire pressure sensor (which is the tire pressure) and 3. ABS sensor ( Which i would associate it with a wheel speed sensor)

You should check the tire pressure, and correct it. Check the bulbs on your brake light and replace as necessary. Then check for a torn or broken ABS sensor, which are located on each wheel,

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
