    yeah those wires usually become hard and break easily...best way to no which wheel is to cross the wires one wheel at a time till light stays off

    thats right just the passenger front and for how much they are and how quick it is to do it i would just get another rather than messing about with the wires

    Just to clarify and correct some misinformation in some posts above.

    There is only one wheel that has the brake pad sensor wire on it, and that's the front nearside (passenger side). No models ever had both front wheels that had the sensors, and certainly none ever came with it on all four wheels.

    Facelift models lost the pad sensor feature completely.

    Paul - as already said above, if your pads are looking fine then it's probably the sensor wire starting to disintegrate. Options are either fit a new sensor wire - they're less than a tenner - or cut the end where it goes into the pads and twist them around each other if you don't want to replace the sensor wire.
