    No...he filled it back up after and yes...parking brake is off. He had to bleed the line...when they bled the line was when it came on.

If the brake light came on it typically is calling out low fluid or the E-brake is on. Check your fluid level and replace with proper fluid. The float may be stuck too causing the light to come on. Also be certain E-brake is fully released.

I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

How do I reset the brake light code


There is no reset. You must replace the brake pad wear sensor wire (part less than $20). Go to RealOEM.com, enter your car VIN and get the specific part number. One each located on driver front wheel and passenger rear wheel. Only need to replace the one that you did the brake job on.

How can i clear the brake warning light


If it is the red light that says Brake, it could be the parking brake switch or the low fluid sensor on the master cylinder.

05 neon making squealing noise while driving. the noise stops when brakes are pushed


inferior pads or improperly installed. it could be that they just need to conform to the disc and the sound will go away, but you should find out that everything else is ok. if you got one of those brake jobs with a lifetime warranty, then its definitely because of the pad material.

Brake pad wear indicator light does not go off at the dash after changing rotors brake pads and the sensor in the front wheels all pads and rotors and the sensor is ok at rear. the vehicle has only 30000...


Did you change the sensor? if you did, do a battery reset (disconnect for 10 to 20 min.).

Obviously the wear sensor has made contact with the rotor and is already damaged. You're not even suppose to resuse the wear pad sensor if its worn or damaged anyways.The way how the sensor works is that it must make contact to the rotor to complete the wear pad light indicator circuit. There is no mentioning that he replaced the the wear pad sensor with a new one.

But if one did replaced the wear pad sensor and the wear pad indicator is lit up, the way to reset it is to leave the key on in ignition switch #2 or #1 for about 30sec. turn it off and its reset.

Its possible that you forgot to replace the brake light sensors. They are about 15 bucks, and have to be replaced in order for that light to turn off. You can either get them from the dealer where they'll likely charge you 3 times as much, or you can go to http://www.turnermotorsport.com and get them there.

You have to reset the light by leaving the ignition switch on position #2 for about 30 sec. turn off the ignition and start the engine up and see if it goes out. I recommend buying a new wear pad sensor as well because now light will lit up when you're way below spec (less than 3mm)

Also, you could try with this procedure for one E39: Turning off the Check Brake Linings warning on the Instrument Cluster...
- so you've just changed the brake pads on your E39, along with the wear sensors. The old sensor(s) needed replacement cause you waited a bit too long before changing the pads, and wore through the sensor(s), turning on the BRAKE light on the dash. But wait, the light is still on? But there's a new sensor installed... what gives?!
- there is a procedure required in order to turn off the light/warning. With the ignition off, step on and hold the brake pedal. Now, while holding the brake pedal down, turn on the ignition switch to position 2 (just before cranking). Hold the brake pedal until the BRAKE light is off. Tada, the warning is gone and reset.

NOTE: This procedure worked on a 2001 E46 325i. It took about 15-20 seconds, but it cleared out w/o having to unhook the battery.

Does this car require ceramic brake pads?


NO it does not require ceramic brakes. The ceramic brakes are just a different option to the type of brake pads available out on the market.
The ceramic brakes uses ceramic which helps keep the wheels cleaner. Ceramic brakes has less brake dust then conventional brake pads like the Semi metallic brake pads which leave more brake dust on the the wheels.
Note though that ceramic brake pads are harder and last longer with less brake fade then the conventional brake pads. The only thing about the ceramic is that they don't work as good as the conventional brake pads till the heat up during hard braking.
In short the difference between the two, ceramic last longer but you go through replacing your rotor every time you replace your brake pads and there is no brake fade but weak till they heat up.
Semi Metallic brake pads almost last as long, and leave more coating of brake dust on your wheels. Your rotor will last longer and great brakes and will have a slight brake fade when over heated from hard stopping from hight speeds.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Just changed rear brake pads on 05 mazda 6. now


This is normal and you need to keep pumping the brakes till they reset there self. Once the brake peddle have reset there self and is firm, check the brake fluid level again and add brake fluid if low. After brakes have reset there self, go for a test drive around the block and check the parking brakes. Good luck.

2005 Pontiac Montana brakes wear out 3-4 times a year have replaced calibers and rotors still wearing out. please help


You know this is hard to believe. Brake pads should go at least 40,000 even on the front. Calipers should last about 10 to 12 years. That's my record for 46 years running.I wish I had the vehicle and time to review this with you. Start from 05 and discribe every brake issues and EXACTLY what was done and why/

Brake pad llight on audi 2001 a6


In the past I had the same problem with new pads!
You must check up if new brake pads electrical wires are OK. Try as follows:
1. Disconnect only new brake pads wires from the vehicle electrical circuit.
2. Extract old brake pads wires from old brake pads.
3. Insulation wear cap from old brake pads wires.
4. Connect old brake pads wires on the vehicle electrical circuit.
5. Switch ignition ON and start engine.
Now the wear light must go off !
Please Rate my Response! Thanks!
