Brake warning light stays on after replacing rear brake hose


double0

Recommended Posts

I recently had a MOT failure due to steering gaiters needing replacement and a brake hose (replacements ordered from Matt and delivered quickly as usual)!  After the work at my local garage and MOT pass the brake warning light top left in the panel with the seatbelt warning marked (! (P)) stays on and wondering what could have caused this and how to fix as I need to give my local garage some pointers.  During the work the brakes were bled and fluid topped up.  Have checked the connectors on the brake fluid chamber lid and seem ok.  Any help would be appreciated.  Cheers.

Have a search for stuck brake waring light. Its a weird issue that sometimes happens after working on the brake. There is a procedure that involves disconnecting the battery but I can't remember it exactly. There are posts out there with the info or I am sure someone will be along shortly with the details...

Thanks all for the quick replies.  I did search and try the reset with battery off and ignition on etc but may have not done it correctly and now see the references to this being SC only.  I’ll  check the float and level Chris although they did say bad topped up after bleeding.   Nige, your suggestion may the way I go if all else fails!

One of the pad wear sensors may be damaged, that would put the light on.

Pulling them out of the old pads and pushing them in the new ones can lead to damage.

Thanks I think that would be the warning light top right from the wear sensors and the pads haven't been touched.

So check the basics first is the lesson! I had assumed that they had topped up the fluid correctly after the work but looks like not fully topped up as not at the top line 🙁  These things happen and an easy fix!
