Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
IVE JUST HAD MY REAR PADS CHANGED ON MY 318i BMW
BECAUSE THE WARNING LIGHT HAD COME ON,AFTER CHANGING THE REAR PADS THE WARNING LIGHT IS STILL ON CAN YOU HELP IT MAY BE ELECTRICAL??
Its not an electrical problem . . .. . When you change brakes you have to change the brake sensor as well. . . . . It just looks like a piece of wire with a sensor that clips onto the pad . . . . .Normally it is the outerpad. . . I cant tell you on witch sides its on cause it may differ from model to model.
Its not going to be a hazardous to the car the brake light will just keep burning.
If you replace the sensor and t he light does not stop burning it may be that your front brakes are also worn but remember just as at the back there is a sensor at the front.

SOURCE: BRAKE WARNING LIGHT
There is a sensor that is in pad that tells when pads are done, unfortunately but the time the sensor tell you that you need brakes, the sensor is all-ready damaged and needs to be replace with pads. More than likely the pad were replace and NOT the sensors. Change sensors and fix the problem. If fixed ya leave me a FIX-YA comment. Thanks
