I have a 2000 528i and just a few weeks ago the brake pad/lining indicator
light appeared so my buddy and I replaced the front brake pads.
After the brake pads were replaced the indicator light still appears and I
am guessing it has to be reset.
I recently took my car into my local mechanic and in addition to having an
oil change, I requested they "reset" the brake pad/lining indicator light.
I got the car back and the light is still on and there was a note from the
mechanic saying that it should go out soon. I thought this was odd since
the last time I had it done was at a BMW dealer and the light was off right
after the service.
What is strange is that I got the bill yesterday and it said "replaced
front and back senssors and reset light.
I followed another thread in this group and the way I understand is after
the sensors are replaced the light should go out.
What did my mechanic do or not do?
