Resetting Tripped Brake Sensor

What happened: For some odd reason my brake sensors tripped when i was driving and i could not reset it. I had it tied up and not in the brake pad cause i cbf changing them all the time. They were still not worn out.

1. Remove the wheel and brake sensors from the housing.
2. find two of these, tie the wire end together and plug them into the sensor connector. Doesnt matter which orientation because all you trying to do is shorting the circuit. the computer measures the ohms between different sensor so it would reset.

3. after you've plugged it in go ahead and clear the service light and turn off the car and plug your old one back in and you are good to go!
