I agree with witey, Sounds like a brake sensor to me, especially if you just had the pads and rotors changed. I currently have a sensor that doesn't fit into my pad up front so I just have it tied off under the car so I won't throw any lights but I check my brakes more then most normal people.
Yep, I agree too. Try the simple things first, unplug the brake pad sensors, give them a dust off and replace, make sure connections are snug, then have your codes reset, see if it goes away.
I think you will get a warning light without the sensors, but I also do believe that the current warning will go away once you plug in the new sensors.
Ok guys -
Here is one for you. I got a 'Check Brake Linings' message on my 540 along with the Brake light being ON this past weekend. I noticed it after I had floored the car to show off...(pretty stupid, I know, gets worse - to my wife), not when I was breaking - go figure!
Car seems to be stopping fine. All four rotors and brake pads were replaced recently, I am sure they are fine. Any suggestions on what to look for and how to fix it? Also, even if I were to fix it, how do I turn off the error message?
As usual, any suggestions and tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
