    Default Brake pad sensor

    Hi just about to change the front discs and pads, if I cut the pad sensor wire will the warning light stay on?, didnt bother buying the sensor as I probably wont have the car when the discs need replacing again.

    If you can't be bothered to replace the sensor, just join the two wires together and the light will go off.

    It's less than a tenner for the sensor. If you can live with the guilt of the next owner not being aware the low brake pad warning isn't working and has an accident as a result of worn brakes........

    That's looking at the worse case senario obviously.
