    Hi
    Just bought my first BMW - 1991 E30 318i touring auto. The brake pad warning light is on most of the time, but occasionally goes off.
    Have checked pads and the sensors are missing both front and back but the wires have been joined together on the brakes side of the plastic plug and connector. Have checked wires for continuity and are ok. Any ideas?

    Is it the check control light on the roof? Probably a worn brake pedal switch as it'll pick up of there if your brake lights are working or not. And when the light goes off occasionally is it when you press the brake pedal down?
