I did a 325 that way because someone prior had just chopped the sensors off which puts the warning on all the time, also left it without any connectors. Also, I had a rear wheel rub one of the wires in two, splicing it back fixed the problem. Since your mech undid them check to be sure the connectors are seated completely.

I'll check the calipers but, DAMMIT, it's too cold to be out jacking with this stuff!!

I had the car in the shop last Monday having some front suspension work done. It was a friend of mine at a local shop doing the work. He replaced the front shocks, so he had to pull the brakes off to pull the strut. I know he connected the sensor because I watched him do it and it wasn't on all week, but I'm wondering if he inadvertently got it caught somewhere. I'll have to check that too.

I may just use Bill S.'s idea and just kill the system. It's too damn annoying to me.

'91 525i
