Thank you, I was going crazy after testing the sensors (ohms were good) and voltage at the junction box (voltage was good), as well as using the jumper wire to bypass the sensor...Everything was working fine, but my indicator would not reset.

Finally I found this post and realized I screwed things up by reseting the indicator before changing the sensors.

I do not have the tools or software needed to do the reset myself. My question is:

Can I take my car to an indy shop or do I have to take it to the dealership to reset the indicators now? Also, what should I ask them to perform and how much should it cost?

Thanks!

I know im grave digging an old Thread, BUT i wanted to clear something up.

Before you start any process mentioned earlier in this thread and then get into a mess and realize that you are not ready to mess with all that please try the following.

THINGS you need.

A PC i5 or better minium 2.2 GHz and 4gb ram
ISTA (ista is now one suite comes with p/d take not that some e60 models will still needs ista p for retro fitting and programming)
Double K line cable much much cheaper
or if you are a "high baller" as the kids say get your self a K+Dcan with switcher, ( keep note that the cable does indeed matter and you need to figure out which one you need based on production year)
---------------

Now the simplest way of getting all this is through rheingold, but if you are not ready to spend $200 you can try a few sellers on ebay for a cheaper deal.


NOW lets assume you have all of this.

What you need to do is running the diagnostic tolls find the fault, and test everything,

Long story short you will be resetting the CBS via ISTA and that takes about 5 minutes tops,



Best Regards

To anyone who has been driving around with a big red brake light for the past 6 months :P
