BMW e87 118d Warning lights (ABS, Brake pad wear, Vehicle check)

Post by Big_boss93 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 5:43 pm

Hi guys, new to the forum so if I've not done something right please let me know.

Ok so my problem. I replaced one of my rear ABS sensors last year after one was knocked out of alignment. A whole bunch of warning lights are on the dash and still persistent after they've been cleared.

My dad was using my car for a while while I was away. He said he got a service warning light telling him that the brake pads were wearing low. He took it to the mechanic without speaking to me and they purchased brake pads with the wear sensors on (Expensive). The previous pads I had did not include a wear sensor. After reconnecting the pads there was a warning light on the dash for the ABS and the brake pads running low and for a vehicle check. I was away so my dad had all the abs sensors replaced (Very expensive) and he paid an electrician to clear the faults, which he did.

After driving I took a speed bump, and the tyre pressure warning light came on, abs and brake lights came back on. realised there was a slow leak in one of the back tyres and got it repaired. But now all of the warning lights are still on and wont go. Despite getting them cleared 2 weeks ago. Any one know the issue or have any advice what to do? I'm reluctant to get them cleared again for them to just come back.

Thanks

Have a read here.

Also if you hold the left stalk button in when the warning lights pop up you’ll see what codes they are — CC ID XXX and write them all down you can identify what might be the problem.

Hopefully it’s not the ABS pump.

In case it is, read here too

Hope its not useful.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.
