    Brake Pad Message

    I had the brake pad message come up on the dash and i have just replaced the front and rear brakes both discs and pads the front pads have a sensor on them so i assume this is the reading to tell the computer, anyways the "brake pad" message is still there im assuming it should just reset but it hasn't yet anyone got any ideas?

    The warning comes on when you have worn through the sensor wire (Wire goes open circuit) so you need to replace the sensor wire/wires
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    you still have the audible brake pad metal clip and of course the shitty brake performance to tell you your brakes are low - not some daft message! lol
