It either means the brake pads are worn low or the brake wear sensor or sensors are faulty, there are 2, 1 in the front & 1 in the rear......

My e39-530 is not showing the brake wear indication when the pads are worn & therefore every time I have to replace the pads & the rotors together. Any hints on the reasons????

rashid,
wish I had your problem! My sensors tell me to CHECK BRAKE LININGS even after I had pads, rotors, and sensors (twice) replaced.
