BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, the BMW 750LI uses an electronic parking brake. If the warning light remains on you will most likely need to replace the electronic parking brake actuator. The part retails for approximately $900 and takes about an hour to install. It's a common fault on the 750LI. A diagnostic scan should be performed on the parking brake system to verify the failure. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Do you have a part number?
Where on the car is it located?
Hi, the original part number for the actuator is 34 43 6 782 755 but I found out that the part number has been replaced by part number 34 43 2 240 757 which now retails for $1136.
