    Cool Bmw Brakes

    I have just replaced brakes on a bmw 318i 1997 But the brake wear light is still on, do i need a reset tool to put out this light.

    Default Brake warning light

    Hi liamkenny,

    Try replacing your brake pad wear sensors. Once triggered (sensor worn), the circuit is opened and the light is set. If you replace the pads before the warning light comes on, you can reuse the sensors, but once the sensor has done its job and turned on the light, it's not reuseable.

    When you've replaced the sensors, turn the ignition key to position II for about 30 seconds, then turn it off. That should reset the light.
