HOW DO I RESET THE BRAKE PAD LIGHTS IN A BMW?

August 8th, 2018 by

If you have an older BMW vehicle, something that may occur is the brake pad lights will appear on the driving display after getting the brake pads and brake sensors replaced. The problem is most likely due to an electronic issue, and not a brake pad malfunction, and can usually be resolved by resetting the brake pad lights.

To reset the brake pad lights in a BMW, insert the key (or key fob) in the ignition. Move it to position 2, but don’t start the ignition. Open the driver’s door and wait for approximately 10 seconds. After that, the brake pad lights should reset.
