In Reply to: @#$%!* "BRAKE LININGS" message!!!! posted by BMW Newbie (1badgmc) on December 11, 2000 at 11:23:05:
I replaced all pads and sensors about 4 weeks ago. Yesterday while driving home, the stupid "brake linings" message just decides to come on again. WHAT!?? Do I need to buy ANOTHER sensor again!? I love the car but, to me, this is the stupidest warning system on the thing. I can tell when my brakes are going bad. Is there a way to just permanently kill the "brake linings" warning system? It's a great idea for some old farts that don't pay attention to their car. Then again, people like that don't enjoy driving enough to have a BMW. They should go buy a Mercedes.
