How to Reset Brake Light?

Post by mjfreshyfresh » Tue Mar 10, 2015 9:07 pm

Fixing the front boot meant I had to detach the brake lines so the "uneven brake pressure" switch (or whatever exactly it is) triggered so my light is on. I read about it here: "To set the valve back you have to screw out the contact switch from the valve an screw it in again to make the switch inside snap to zero again." http://www.c303.de/c303-en/z-tuv.htm

I found the sensor and unscrewed it. Just a little piece of plastic rod sticks out of it, I can push it in and it springs back out. When I screw it back in the light is still on.

How exactly does one reset this switch so the brake light goes off?s

Thanks-

... have you also pulled out the brakepedalindikator ?
It is a pin at the top of the brakepedal. Just pull it out.
And the handbrake should be off.

Bleed front brake circuit completely while ignoring the warning valve signal.

Have someone in the driver's seat apply brake pedal pressure and crack a bleeder fitting on one side at the wheel cylinder until the light goes out. If the first side doesn't do it, crack a bleeder on the opposite side.
