Question about 2002 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

Mini Cooper 2002-02

My brake pad wear warning light on the dashboard is constantly on and has been like this since we had the brake pads renewed some months back, the pads were not genuine BMW items. Our local garage has checked for faulty sensors but cannot even find any wiring for sensors or pads.

Can anyone help?

There should be sensors, not able to find them means they are not there, hence the light is on. You can buy the sensors from your dealer. +/- $8. When they have been lid, you have to replace them. I think the mechanic who changed the pads, removed the sensorcable.

The light in the dashboard is staying red for the brakes. Ihave checked the brake , they are released so why is the brake light staying red olease


Because the brake pads have sensors on and when they wear down too far, they activate the brake warning light. Time for new brake pads!

A warning light in my 2004 mini - light on top next to seat belt light on left - looks like a steering wheel - what does that mean


That is the brake pad warning light. When is goes off the brakes, front or rear, need to be replaced. The brake pads and the sensor have to be replaced, as once the sensor is tripped, it can't be reset.
