If you attempt to reset and the wear sensor has been triggered, you get a dashboard of lights and the fronts will error out as well. It's really quite impressive. I know because I did this. I replaced pads without replacing the wear sensor and tried to reset the system. Once I replaced the wear sensor, all was right with the world again. Good system. A little confusing for a first timer, but very manageable. p
