There is a sensor on the brake pads on bmws that check for noise and when the sensor hears noise it is telling the car that the wear indicators on the brakes are hitting and causing noise because the brake pads(lining) is low,means check your brakes the pads are low and if you dont check them soon you will have no pads left and my grind the pads metal to metal against the rotors,so all it is saying is you may need new brakes because they are worn out
hope that helps,,,

My bmw x5 4.4 suv keeps blowing instrument cluster. Fitted new alternator but reluctant to fit replacemnt cluster until voltage to cluster checked, how can I do this Driving me mad


Need a little more info,
When your cluster dies, is it everything?
All back lighting? or just the icons don't light anymore?
How about outside lights? tail, brake, marker, head lights, are any of those out when the fuse blows?
Does the fuse blow right away or is it a slow few minutes to hours or days?

I did some checking on BMW X5, seems that this particular vehicle has major problems with everything, so this may take some time to get straightened out.

I replaced my instrument cluster with a used cluster (BMW X5, 03') the brake lights are all on now. How do I match the new cluster with my X5?


The lights are all on because of a loss of power. If you test drive the car, once you reach 15 mph, the lights should reset. Matching the cluster will set the odometer to the CPU odometer (actual miles).

No power to something, no matter what, normally means a blown fuse. Check the fuse to it. The fuse panel cover has the diagram on the under side of it or would be in the operator/repair manual.

How to replace turn light on bmw x5


partially remove the desired light by remove the 4 8mm screws, two ont the top and two at bottom behing the light, pull the light out far enough that you can see the socket,you should be able to remove it at that point.You should also check the contact of the bulb as it is most likely burned or melting and has damaged the socket so you should replace he socket and bulb as the warning may still be present even though the bulb works.Also the rear tail lights have a corrosion and burning issue as well on the brake contacts.
