    rolleyes Did anyone else's brake warning light come last week?

    Hi folks,

    Just wondering if anyone else got the warning light on the dash to say brake pads were worn last week with the snow/ice weather conditions? It was on for me all last week and at first I thought it must be the snow/ice but as I continued to use the car it didnt go off. Anyway, I ordered some pads (and discs whilst I was at it) and the warning light came off yesterday!! Bah!!

    Visually check your pad wear to be certain, but it sounds like water/ice may have got into the wear sensor itself or into the sensor's wiring connector at the back of the wheelarch.

    Last week, water got into my nearside front wheel speed sensor wiring connector under the wheelarch - the one right next to the break pad wear wiring sensor. This caused the ABS and TC lights to come on until I had the fault code read and dried the connector out. I suppose it may have gone out on it's own after a while if the water dried out but I had a MOT the following day - and I don't waiting to see if a fault 'just disappears'.
