    Just replace the sensor cable when the new brake pads and discs get fitted
    Part is about £10, can be sourced for less than that

    You could just link it out. Put a cable in the connection so the two connections are joined. Job done Doesn't need tech-2ing
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The reason I said that is I'm sure someone said they had done that before. It could need to read a known value, bit like the bulb check. For the sake off a tenner, may as well replace them, unless someone knows better?

    I might be wrong, but i thought the light comes on to let you know you know your brakes are low, this usually works by the 2 wires in the sensor touching the disc and creating a short which in turn lights up the brake warning light??



    my cable was worn through to nothing, i never replaced it cos the main dealer was shut when i fitted then discs and pads, the light has never been on since

    try seperating the cables, or just unplugging the whole unit

    I joined the pins in the body side of the connector using a paper clip - that was 12K ago, and the light's not been on since.
