Brake pad low warning sensor

Hi, my brake pad low warning sensor came on the other week (only done 17k) and my wife drives the car mostly and is not a fast driver/heavy broker! Still none the less I changed the pads and replaced the sensor for the total sum of £39! Problem is I don't know how to reset the warning notification. Can anyone help with this?

Thanks

Good question and hopefully someone will be along shortly who can answer.

Where did you get the brake pads from; when I looked recently no one stocked them (including on the internet) - they could only be sourced through dealerships?

PW F56 MCS; 26,000 miles now and counting

I got the pads through Beds Battery and the sensor from Eurocarparts

If the warning light generates a fault code, it should be able to to cleared and the light extinguished by using one of the gadgets that plugs into the OBD port.

My Scangauge does that and has been invaluable on my old MG for diagnosing what is wrong when the engine light comes on (usually a faulty lambda sensor) and clearing the code and resetting the light. I hope it will do the same on the Mini.

There are plenty of other such devices out there, cheaper too, but perhaps not so informative.

It might be the same as BMW, if so you can try this:

There will probably be a series of button presses that allow this. That was certainly the case on the r50 and r56.

Here is how to do it on the r56 - worth a try perhaps?

As kenl says a seires of button presses with ignition in the on did it nice and simply on the r56 and would hope it would be the same on the f56. since it is all bmw the current bmw method ought to work if they are different?!

Surprisingly delighted to have moved to an f54((with a r59 in the fold for fun!)

Cheers chaps, I tried the R56 method but it doesn't give you the option to clear the brake pad low warning.

Hi, did you ever get your light turned off? I am in the same predicament with mine.

Hi Jbkudos. Just tried resetting brake pad warning light on f56 Mini One. Hold the odometer reset button (on the speedo) for about 10 seconds and the option to reset each light (oil service etc as on the R56) appears. Short presses then allow reset if it is available.
