Are you referring to the red "BRAKE" light on the dash? If so, that light illuminates when the level in the brake fluid reservoir gets below a certain point. Once the pads are replaced and the fluid pushed back in the reservoir the light will go out on it's own.

2014 Ghibli. If I replace brake pads and discs does brake warning light turn off by itself or need to be reset?


If you're talking about brake pads that have an electrical connector..
the warning light comes on when the pad is so worn that it allows the electrical connector to earth via the disk .. hence the warning light.

Fitting new pads will not cause a warning light on your dashboard. No reset required.

Changing brake pads and rotors will not solve this problem. Go to Auto Zone and have them read your computer for ABS codes and then you can zero in on the problem.

The pad wear warning shouldn't have to be reset. It will only illuminate if it actively sees the sensor circuit grounding out. If the all the pads/sensors have been replaced properly, it should automatically disappear.

Maybe it's possible there's another problem. Fluid level is ok? No air in the system? All the sensor wires are routed properly? user_offline.gif quote.gif

I had the brake pad light come on so I changed the pads, now I need to reset the warning message. How?


when changing the brake pads you also need to replace the pad sensor that runs into the left caliper in the front. Or the right caliper in the rear.

I replaced the front pads on a VW JETTA 2.5 and the check pads light is on. How can I reset the check pads light?


As the brake pads wear, the brake pad wear sensor contained in the brake pad contacts the brake rotor. This causes the sensor to fail. When a pad wear sensor fails it opens the ground circuit of the pad wear warning light system causing the pad wear warning light to illuminate. Perform normal brake service to correct this condition and be sure to replace the brake pads with pads containing wear sensors. Once the brake pads and wear sensors are replaced, reset the brake pad warning system by turning the ignition switch to the "on" position. As long as continuity to ground exists through all the brake pad wear sensors the system should reset and the pad warning light in the dash will go out. If the pad warning light does not go out, a check of the pad warning circuit for an open circuit condition or poor ground must be performed.

Anti-lock dash warning illuminated


check brakes fluid level and also check to see if the sensor was connect back after the pads was change. If all is ok then take it to Auto Zone and they will scan it and clear the code for free also you can clear the code by disconnecting the negative battery lead for 10 seconds but this might make your radio ask for a code in order to play it. good luck

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.
