    How do I reset the "Check Brake Pad and Brake" light warning

    I've been trying to reset my "Check Brake Pad and Brake" light warnings on our 2005 RR. I've tried the turning the key to position 1 and letting it sit for a minute and it didn't work. I also tried turning the key on and off 9 or more times and that didn't work either. I recently had the front and rear pads replaced and the sensor on the front so I know the brakes are okay. Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like a faulty sensor. Check that they are all okay, fitted correctly and plugged in. Also check that the wiring is not rubbed through by a tire.

    Give it some time. I replaced my rears and it took over a week and 5 to 6 trrips in the car for the warnings to stop.

    I had the pads and sensor changed on my car and was told to do the following 10 times:-

    put key in ignition and turn on, turn off and take key out.

    Worked for me.

    maybe it was your rear sensor that rubbed through?

    You can tell by looking at it if it has rubbed through. Maybe they replaced one but not the other?

    Re: How do I reset the "Check Brake Pad and Brake" light warning

    I've "repaired" our rear low pad warning sensor and the warning went out as soon as I turned the ignition on.

    This makes sense to me as there is no reason for the warning to be active after the brakes are all replaced/repaired.

    I'm a bit perplexed that you would have to turn ignition on/off numerous times, or drive for a week before it's fixed.

    Could be a software problem too.

    If it's still a problem, check out the sensors with a multimeter. There should be continuity through both wires. Check the connectors too to make sure the plug connectors are properly seated. Also, the sensor does not need to be in the disc housing to work but do make sure it's installed before driving.

    I replaced rear pads and sensor 3 weeks ago. The brake lining light remained on for about a week and turned off by itself. On my old BMW which used the same sensor the light would go off as soon as you changed to a new one. Go figure

    interesting stuff:

    The 2003-2004 Range Rover equipped with the BMW system has many hiden service modes that are not detailed in your owners manual.

    Resetting the Oil Service or Service Interval Message.
    Ignition key must be “off”.
    • Press and hold the trip odometer button in the instrument cluster (left button), and turn the ignition key to the first position (KLR).
    • Keep the button pressed for approximately 5 seconds until one of the following words appear in the display: “OIL SERVICE, or “INSPECTION”, with “reset”.
    • Release the reset button and press and hold it again until “reset” begins to flash.
    • While the display is flashing, press the left button briefly to reset the service interval.
    After the display has shown the new interval, the following will appear: “END SIA”.
    Resetting ALL Defect Codes

    Ignition key must be “off”.
    • Press and hold the Check Control button in the instrument cluster (RIGHT button), and turn the ignition key to the first position (KLR).
    * You will first see "Check Control OK", some seconds later you will see "Test Nr.01"
    * Push the left button on the instrument cluster to see the car's identification number. Add the 5 digits (not 6) together and write down that number, you will need it for unlocking all the functions. Example: A123457 will lead to 2+3+4+5+7 = 21
    * Push the right button until you see "Test Nr.19"
    * Push left button until you see the number that is equal to the one you calculated above
    * Push right button again
    * Using the left button select 21. Reset all defect codes
    * Press the Right button to select.

    Hidden Navigation Service Menu


    Did you know that you can roll down the windows by holding the unlock button? Did you also know you can roll them up by turning the key in the door to the right and holding in this position.
    Did you know you can turn the DSC into Competition Driving Mode. Press and hold the DSC button for 10 seconds until the light goes out on the dash. This mode gives you active handling via the brackes but NO throttle managerment when DSC engages. It is also good for snow/ice operation when you want the tires to spin.

    Programming a new Key

    Replacing a missing master key is quite expensive from Land Rover, try not to get sucked into the extra cost of "Dealer coding" You can do this yourself in 2 minutes by following the simple process below.

    1) Get in and close all doors. Turn ignition on and off quickly and remove the key (all within about 5 seconds).

    2) Within 30 seconds of turning the ignition off, while holding down the "unlock" button, press the "lock" button three times. Release the "unlock" button. (You may or may not get the confirmation from the door locks.) Holding the key at your head level provides best results as the key sensor is in the side window pillar.

    3) Repeat for each key you want to initialize within 30 seconds after the last one you initialized (if you have more).

    4) Right after doing the last key, quickly put the key back in the ignition and turn it on/off again to finalize.

    Deativating the interior cabin motion sensor while locking the doors
    You can arm the alarm while turning off the interior motion sensor and the tilt sensor simply by hitting the lock button twice within 10 seconds or turning the key in the door twice to the right.

    You can monitor the red led on the mirror when locking to be sure you set it in the correct mode. When you deactivate the interior sensors (with that second push of the key, or second turn of the lock) then the LED goes solid red for 2 seconds before starting to blink.

    Using the remote to roll down all windows and open sunroof

    You can roll down all the windows and open the sunroof simply by pressing and holding the unlock key. In Europe you can use the lock key to roll the windwos up. It is possible to set the Rover key programming to roll the windows up as well, but it would require a "smart dealer" to program. And we all know how many of those their are.
