Check your auto book that comes with the vechicle and it should explain to you on how to reset the warning light and if that does not work then you go to the car lot and they will tell you the code or how to fix it.

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.

Peugeot 405 SRi: brake pad warning light came on; pads replaced; warning light stays on. Any idea how to reset? CHeers, Chris


Hi Chris
Is there plenty of fluid for the nrakes? they should have little wires coming from the brake pads , normally once you have replaced the pads this light would go out automatically.

It may not be your pads that triggered the light.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

Brake pad warning light on


If the pads were replaced by non-audi aftermarket pads they may not have the pad sensor and this will cause the warning light to come on.

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.

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.

Audi 200 1991 getting a warning light


The brakes. It goes off because your brake fluid has gone below the minimum level, and sets the sensor off. Before you go adding brake fluid, what it REALLY means is that your brake pads are so worn down that the brake pistons in your calipers are extended all the way in order to make contact with the rotors. Therefore, the amount of fluid in your reservoir is low. Replace your brake pads, and see if you also need your rotors shaved/replaced because you let them go so far. Personal note: On older cars, the brake fluid is supposed to be replaced every 3 years. See if it needs a flush. If you can, drain out all the old DOT 3 brake fluid and replace it with synthetic DOT 3 or the newer DOT 4.
