    Sounds like the brake pad wear indicator/wire/loom fitted to one of the front n/s pads.

    Was it replaced when the new pads were fitted? It needs to be replaced if the brake pad warning light came on as it's designed to make contact with the disc when the pads wear down to a few mm. Ask the garage if they put a new one on.

    They could have re-fitted the old one (naughty), the old or new one could have a broken wire (two wires to the sensor part that's fitted in the pad) or could just be a bad connection where the 12-18" loom connects to another wiring harness, located just behind the n/s suspension strut. Trace the cable back from the pad to find the connector.

    If they are fitted, check the wires to the rear pads also. They could be broken and earthing out. Just a thought.
