    Brake pad wear sensor

    Ok, I give up. The brake pad wear indicator light is on on the dash of my 2000 Sport. The front brakes were worn, so I replaced them and the back brakes look fine. Does this light also come on when the back brakes are worn or does it only work on the front brakes? Is there any other procedure to go through to get the light to go out?

    To shut the light off you must short the sensor circuit. To do that you can use the used sensor and short the 2 cables inside it. I did it so and the light goes away.
