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.

Depending on what warning is on... if it's stating brake sensor then one has come loose or cable got pinched when re-installing. If it's ABS light that needs to be reset w/reset tool.

What would be the causes for brake lining study light to come on in a bmw x5 2005.


Study light? Do you mean warning light?
There are sensors clipped into the brake pads on the front left and rear right wheels. When the brake pads get very thin, those sensors rub on the brake rotors, and the light illuminates in the dash indicating that it is time to replace the brake pads.
The light can also illuminate if something damages the wire to the sensor. I usually replace my pads before they get down to the sensors, so I re-use my old sensors. Although the wires are fairly well secured to the suspension, after a few years, the wires can get chaffed from the wind blowing them around, and the damaged wire can turn on the warning light.

the brake pad warning light is controlled by a sensor located in the front and rear brake pads, small contact with 2 wires that plud into a harness, if they are bad I think the replacement cost is around 5-10 dollars for a new one, there will only be one in the front and one in the rear, the service light is turned out by a special tool at the dealer

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.

Brake wear sensors


Redmondeo34


A couple of things to check.
This is only if you replaced the front pads, after the warning light came on.
1. Make sure brake fluid is level and at the max mark
2. Did you replace the front pads sensors with the new pads.If not please do.
3. Check that the rear pads and sensors are not worn and do not require replacing.
4. If all above is good, Drive vehicle for about 5klm and switch off and on it will reset itself

regards
I hope this helps.

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


Its not an electrical problem . . .. . When you change brakes you have to change the brake sensor as well. . . . . It just looks like a piece of wire with a sensor that clips onto the pad . . . . .Normally it is the outerpad. . . I cant tell you on witch sides its on cause it may differ from model to model.

Its not going to be a hazardous to the car the brake light will just keep burning.

If you replace the sensor and t he light does not stop burning it may be that your front brakes are also worn but remember just as at the back there is a sensor at the front.
