Holy Christ, this is the most asked question on the Forum. It's the 30,000 mile inspection.

I have a quick question for you guys. I've been driving around with this 2 symbols for months now. I've replaced the front brake pads and sensor and they haven't gone away.
I'm going to replace the rear pads tomorrow, will both symbols go away?

I'll buy a vowel. The letter "e" please.

And so many of you new kids never search anything. Or you'll try once or twice and then claim that you tried and couldn't find it. Lazy asses. People need to learn to use their brains once in awhile. This forum has A TON of information on almost everything about our cars. Look for it.

You need to reset the system check.

you can do it straight through the BC stalk (button and toggle switch on turn signal) and the odo reset button in the gauge cluster.

I think if it was the brake sensors it would show the front or rear brake symbol with mileage at -------.

Scroll to your service info menu and see what service is overdue. Car on a lift means "Vehicle Check" I think.

I think it's this and the "do I have comfort access" question...

Same as mine. Brake sensors are out. Just replace them and hang aside.

Yup, brake sensors. I had the same thing come up on my dash; took it to the dealership and was informed that one of the wires running to a brake sensor had been rubbing on a wheel and wore through.

FYI, you won't find this combination of symbols in the manual.

Alright but why do you go around acting like you have a stick up your ass? Relax. Its not hurting you, anyone, or anything if people make any kind of threads. If you find something stupid, ignore it and move on. Grow up
