    You've joined them? Thats how it works, pads wear, senor wears down and the contact is joined. Just remove the wire or replace it with a new one, they are less than £10. And there is only one wire, on the front near side, so dunno what you have joined on the other side fella.

    The wires on front left and right are the same and both go to the same thing. So won't they do the same thing

    Yes and no. Depends on the age of the car I think.

    And newer models had no sensors at all.
