Brake pad sensor reset

Post by dukee »

I mounted a complete M Sport brake package on my 220 Coupe LCI (-18) and ran a set of track pads for a couple of days. Now when I changed to street pads and connected the brake pad wear sensors I still get the alerts that the brake pads need service.
I erased the fault codes through BootMod but I still get them.

Is there a way to reset the sensors? Like shorten the brake pad wires?

No, that's not the issue here.
Found the reset procedure on Youtube which solved it. Guess maybe this was a too technical question for this forum.

Asking a community of people something you don’t know the answer to and then insult them when you find it after doing a bit of searching yourself... Priceless

I'm sorry if I came out as rude. But IMHO what kills forums is that people don't read the question and then give a reply that is clearly wrong! I simply asked "Is there a way to reset the sensors? Like shorten the brake pad wires?"
And got the reply to buy new sensors! Either the person cannot read or the person don't know the answer but decides to answer it anyway.

Now, if the biggest issue you guys have with this is my attitude towards been given a clearly wrong answer I say good luck to you :lol:

And to answer my own question, if this pops up in a future search for anyone, YES you can, and need, to reset the pad sensor warnings after they have been triggered. This is not solved by new sensors.
1. Turn on the ignition with the door closed
2. Press and hold the reset button in the cluster
3. The service meny appears. Press the button to cycle to what you want to reset
4. Press and hold until the reset question appears.
5. Press and hold until reset is done.

Now I've made my contribution to the forum.

No what kills forums are twats like you. Luckily we only have to deal with morons like you once or twice a year.

Thanks for the contribution, you have now become the third twat this year breaking last years record for muppets with no tact, manners, or intellect.

Bravo son bravo

Now that is some seriously disrespectful language for simply not praising wrongful information and instead offers actual information about how to solve an issue.
