    Default Brake warning light

    Hi. When I had my pads replaced last the warning light did not turn off. When I next had the car in for a service at the main dealer they ordered me a new sensor but when I went to collect they said it was not the sensor but rather in the wiring and it would be a huge job to fix? I have lived with it since but having just found this forum I thought it may be good to see if anyone else has had the same issue.

    As Drinky said, it would be unlikely it would be anything else. I have had a brake pad wire pack up before the pads were even worn. They can and will pack up at their own free will.

    The wire in the harness sometimes breaks about 9 inches from the plug (on the body side of the plug). Peel back the conveluted tubing and check the wires. It could be that.

    yep, if you can find the break, a repair is better than a replacement loom..

    Hi. That would match up to what the dealer said, although they made it sound like a big job.

    they will replace the entire loom...rather than repair it..

    as your car is out of warranty, take it to an independant garage who will repair it at far less cost..
