Question about 2003 BMW K 1200 GT

1 Answer

My 2003 1200 gt warning light comes on when I touch the brakes either front or rear and stays on. If I don't touch brakes it doesn't come on. the fluid in the rear reservoir got down to the min level and I topped it off and it still comes on, the bike has 11,000 miles and brake pads look good. Thanks Rene'

Rene - the manual recommends having the break system checked immediately if the reservoir drops below MIN. It has happened to me once were the warning light was staying on and after carefully riding it down the street in my subdivision the warning light went away.

However if it does not go out after the self diagnostic - there is a possibility the ABS is not functioning and you are only left with a RESIDUAL BRAKING FUNCTION which helps slow the bike but not safe for riding. I would take it to the dealer if the warning stays on and for safety sake -- have it towed.

Brakelight does not come on when front brake applied


Hi Anonymous, a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, witch is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

When these warning lights come on it indicates that the system control module (computer) has detected a fault in the inputs to the module from the wheel speed sensors and other inputs, what you must have done now is have the module scanned for fault codes and based on the codes diagnosis and repair is done to correct the faults

Electric start on speedfight 2 wont work have installed a new battery as the bike has been standing for about a year


If it will kickstart, but the leccy foot doesn't work, make sure the brake light comes on with both front and rear brake light switches as these also function as ignition cut out switches. The switches tend to wear badly on the plungers and if the brake light don't come on you will probably have to replace. One or other of the brake lights MUST be operate before the starter will work. If these are OK, check the starter itself by use of a jumper pack or another battery and jump leads. Leave the ignition switched OFF. Negative lead to a good earth like the kickstart, touch the positive directly to the terminal on the motor, careful, not a lot of room in there, if the starter don't turn, it's probably goosed. Replace.

hope this helps

A brake warning light is coming on and the car


hi there,
this sounds like your brake pad wear sensor light, it lets you know when your pads need replaced, hence the difficulty in braking,.the front ones usually need replaced before the rear ones, as they wear out faster, due to the 70/30 front to rear braking ratio
