Brake Pad Sensor / Resetting

Hi,

I was getting my front pads and discs change yesterday, but didnt change the sensor. I then decided to reset the CBS for the brake pads for front, and all it goes wrong, with the warning ....etc showing up on the cluster / idrive saying pads are due for front and rear. Since then, i wouldnt be able to reset the counter.

My guess would be I need a pair of new sensor for front and rear? as the computer is looking for a different reading from the sensor, since i was resetting it?

Anyone can point me to the right direction?

Cheers

Yep, new sensors. They are pretty cheap and should be changed with pads.

If you want to get rid of the warnings as a temporary fix you can cut the pad sensor end off the existing sensor wire and join the two spliced wires together.

Thanks guys.

I was planning to change them, just that GSF supplied me the rear instead of front and its too long to use for front. I only realise when I was trying to fit them. The new ones are on order now, things should get sorted then
