bad man working is an unknown quantity at this point
Some BMW's you have to leave with just the ignition on for 25 sec's after changing rake sensors (it resets the fault memories) but I think your car is to early The sensors are easy to test just bridge them and watch the light. If this fail they are feed from the instrument cluster it's a single that loops through both sensors and goes to earth so if you put a volt meter anywhere on this circuit between the wirer and earth you should see 7volts (I think but it's less than 12v)
