Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
After I replaced my brake pads, my brake pad light is still on
Make sure the brake discs are still within spec, as they usually only last the life of one set of OE pads.
Make sure your brake pads has the recess to accept the clip in wear sensor on the inner Right rear brake pad, and front drivers inside pad.
If you have refitted these, and it is defective, you may need to replace it.You can disconnect the lead and check you have continuity. - You should have on a good sensor.
When the pads wear past 2mm, the discs slice through a small plastic bump - and break a wire link - thus the light comes on the dash.
After replacement of wear sensor, leave key in 'on' position for a couple minutes and the light will go out.
If this solves the problem, please rate as a Fixya! so others may benefit. Thanks.
