Want get ride of yellow BRAKE light. Need help!

Hi, guys.

I have a big brake kit on my car, and the brake wear sensor is not fit with new kit. So I zip tied it away.

However the yellow BRAKE light come on, I found it is for rear brakes. I tried to reset the service in dash, but it can't be reset.

Now I want get ride of the yellow BRAKE light, can I go get a new brake wear sensor and zip tie it away? Will the BRAKE light gone?

Thanks

Replacing the rear brake sensor should get rid of the yellow brake light. I currently have the yellow brake light as well and after inspection, I found out that my rear brake sensor cable was worn down/cut from touching the inner wall of the wheel. Yellow brake light indicates that the computer cannot detect the brake sensor...resetting won't work.

How much you paid for your brake wear sensor?

those sensors are like 20 bucks or so. You only need one for the rear and one for the front.

Order online, cheaper than dealer. I use partsgeek.com

+1 anything more than around $20 for sensors is too much

or, if you are never going to use it, cut the sensor off, and twist the two wires together. Then just tie it up out of the way.
