P0155 wear does it go

This is the O2 sensor heater circuit bank 2 sensor 1. It really depends on which engine you have(or what model). If this is a V-8 version(540i) then it would be on the opposite side of the number 1 cylinder in the exhaust manifold. If this is a L6 (535i or below) this is likely the one prior to the catalytic converter in the pipe.

The brake light on the dashboard will come on if the brake fluid is low. This can be caused by
