Changed brake pads front and back. Break sign still up

hi, i installed all the brake pad front and back, but i did not replace the sensors. When i went and tried to do the reset first it showed up in yellow for the front pad and red for the back so i did the reset for the back but nothing changed the miles ended up showing up as -15000 and front which was yellow is now red aswell and shows -150000. Can someone help i did order sensor to replace is that the only thing that needs to be changed and then try the reset? oeh and i think the break fluid was also showing up as red? put some break oil and then try reset. Thanks for your help.

Did your sensors break? It's a closed loop system, so if they brake off the electric signal will not return. I broke a sensor but just spliced the wires together so I don't get a error.

Replace the front and rear brake sensor..once its triggered you have to change it..there are two ..on the drivers side front and rear

or you can solder the wires together ..when i do my BBK this is what I will do as you cannot use the sensor w a BBK

nice, ended up getting the sensor off of ebay they were both the same size so the one in the rear was short . cut the sensor and just taped it with the original wire, worked. front one was the right size so replaced the whole unit.
