Question Answered: 

Did you check the fuse? Do that first. Then you can do this: Get a flashlight and a piece of wire about 3 ft long. 1. Locate MES Plug. It should be located near the driver's side fuse panel under the dash. The harness is yellow with two wires. 2. Unplug the MES Plug. It should look like this. 3. Insert one end of speaker wire into MES Plug (one wire in each contact) 4. Follow this sequence of shorting the other two leads of the speaker wire and turning the ignition to "on" (not accessory, not start) Short and hold the leads while you turn the ignition to on. The SRS Light will illuminate for a few seconds then go off. When the SRS Light goes off, unshort the wires. The SRS Light will come back on. Short and hold the wires again. The SRS Light will go off. When the SRS Light goes off, unshort the wires. The SRS Light will blink twice. Turn the ignition off. Start engine as normal. The SRS Light should illuminate for a couple of seconds as normal and then go off. This series of shorting/unshorting needs to take place within a 4 second window of the SRS Light going on/off each time. http://www.superhonda.com/forum/536559-post5.html Check for images. IF THE CODE RESETS IN YOUR SENSOR THAN SOMETHING ELSE IS WRONG. THIS SYSTEM CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE. IF IT RESETS AND THE CODES APPEAR AGAIN HAVE A DEALERSHIP GIVE YOU A DIAGNOSTIC PRINT OUT ON YOUR CAR.

BMWs have brake sensors on them that go off for a few reasons. Have your fluid checked. Have the wear on the pads checked and have the sensors checked. Now if you have had all this done and they are still lighting up check the rotors as a last resort.
