Hi to get them to switch off you have to take your car into a garage and have the computer reset this will then reset all the sensors on the wheels and will turn the lights off.

getting this done is the only way your going to get the lights to turn off, not all garages have the equipment to do this on bmw so you may have to shop around a bit first

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page as people dont rate the posts, thanks

Hi i got a 2000 mb mlk 320. the dash lights up when i turn the ignition with this symbol ( ) it goes on and off. there's nothing that says between in it like (ABS) or (!) so please help.


If light on yellow color I think It would be bark pads warning signal, please check brake pads not only outer inner too, because sensor fitted in inner pad some time outer pads not too bad but inner pads are worn, if not warn brake pads pssibly wiring faulty for brake pads sensors, if messege read color It would be low brake oil signal or hand brake signal, is this information helped you?

How to reset brake light after changing pads.


Hi Peters6709,
Sorry to tell you, but you need to replace the pad-wear sensors as well. They are the little trapezoid pieces that hang inside the tops of the inside pads. They should run about $10 each. Once replaced, disconnect the battery completely for about 10 minutes, if you have a stock radio keep the code handy.

Next time check the pads every 10-12K miles. I have been running the SAME pad wear sensors on my Z3 for the past 2 pad changes now after making the same mistake the first time.

Best of luck!

I changed the brakes how do I reset the brake lights on 2007 toyota prius


some vehicles have a sensor that attaches to the brake pads and when they wear to the point that the sensor touches the rotor, it'll wear the plastic off the sensor and touch the metal inside to trigger a replace brakes light on your dash. im not familiar with the prius's system, but if you had a wire going to your brake pads, you'll need to replace it. once the sensor is triggered, it's no good anymore.

Yellow DSC and Brake light on... recently changed brake pads


Abs and dsc are related and with the light on these won't work. It is possible that you need to go back to where the work was done to look this over.

Unknown light on dash


It sounds like a brake pad warning light. Sometimes can be linked in with the brake fluid light.
Check the brake fluid level first. If its ok then check the front brake pads. If the pads are worn down the fluid level will have dropped. Also if the fluid level is low the sensor will bring on the light.

On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.
