Question about 2005 BMW Z4

5 Answers

Brake, ABS, DTS lights up on display

I would like to know how to clear the Brake, ABS, and DTS lights on my dash. I have a 2005 Z4 and I was hard wiring a radar detector in the fuse panel and didn't have this problem until after I messed with the fuses. I was looking for the fuse which only had power when the engine was started. Never did find it and so I just hooked it up to one of the 5 amp slots. The dealer wants to charge me around $250.00. I just bought the car about three weeks ago and they did a 125 point inspection on the car and it was fine until I started screwing with it. Please let me know if I can get this fixed without costing me a mint. Thanks,,

    I took my radar detector and grounded one side and the hot side I plugged into different fuses looking for one which only got hot when the engine was running. So I plugged and unplugged several fuses and turn my key on trying to find the fuse which only got hot when the engine was running. I had no luck so I pulled the 40 amp fuse on the top to see if that would do it and hooked up the hot wire to it and put the fuse back in the slot and turned on the engine. I hope that this is enough info for this problem. Please advise.



    Thanks,,

    I have the manual for my car and your answer doesn't help me with my problem. Please suggest a solution and not a generic answer.

    I appreciate the help, I had already tried this and it did not work. I am having the BMW dealership fix this. I bought a Peake scanner also to try and fix this myself and it read the codes but it would not reset any of them.
    Thanks,,,

Try disconnecting the battery for half an hour,if this doesnt do the trick you will need a scanner to grab the codes and delete them.

The best way to clear the codes is to remove the battery cables and let the car sit, this should clear the codes otherwisebrake masters has a cupon to read the codes and they will clear them for you for free if you get the cupon in their lounge

    Please let us know who your are trying to address, From my experience with the car computers anytime you tap into a circuit that belongs to the computer it will notice a change in the voltage diffrence and read something wrong therefore flagging a warning that you need to check the engine (i.e. the sensors) all sensors that talk to the computer give voltage rather than a reading and if that voltage gets interrupted thru the fuse block, then the computer is going to think that there is something REALLY wrong with the engine or sensors

2002 Honda Odyssey Trying to hard wire a radar to go off with key


The radio fuse has power until the key is removed.. Try and locate the air conditioning or engine fuse, both these will lose power when the ign key is removed..if all else fails, use a 12volt test probe to check each fuse in turn until you locate one which is switched by the key..
