SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Speedometer, RPM, ABS, and Brake light

It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.

SOURCE: i have a bmw 318 ci coupe that idles up and down

1) Check and make sure that the rubber intake pipe and vacuum hose are not leaking.

2) If the symptom persists, check and thoroughly clean the throttle with a good solvent.

3) Then, check if the fuel return valve is NOT leaking. (remove the hose and smell for gas odor) .If you smell gas, replace the valve in no time.

4) If you follow steps 1 to 3 and the problem lingers, try replacing the TPS. (Throttle Sensor)

Good Luck!!

Do grade me if it helps.

SOURCE: 325 ci brake rotors have been replaced 4 times in 6 years

BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.

SOURCE: ABS and anti skid tracking control lights stay on in my BMW 523i

Unfortunately there are several possibilities that are common to causing the light to come on. I would suggest taking the car in to a dealer and having them read out the fault memory. Such possibilities are a failed speed sensor, a binding DSC/ACS actuator cable, or faulty DCS/ASC control unit. If you know how, you can disconnect the speed sensors, and check for voltage output across the the terminals inside the connector going to the speed sensor while rotating the wheel. A dealer should charge you about an 1hour fee to check out your system. Due to the cost of parts involved, I would recommend having it checked before just guessing.

Changed back brake pads on 2004 tahoe , now the brake light and stabilty light is staying on . why? and what do i need to do?


If you have disc brakes on back, did you open the bleeder valve to compress the caliper piston? If not and you pushed the fluid back into the system, you could have blown the seals in the antilock brake system, This doesn't happen all the time, but does happen. If you did the brakes will still work, just not the ABS.

Hi Stuart, the battery light indicates that the alternator is not charging. The alternator needs to be repaired or replaced in the case where the alternator is the problem. Before replacing the alternator you might want to check your fuses. It might be that one of the main fuses blew, causing the alternator not to charge. The traction control light will come on if it detects a problem with the supply voltage to the control unit caused by the alternator not charging.
