View Full Version : Does Brake pad wear sensors affect ABS light & Traction control light?

I have a 1700A code and these lights on. I noticed that someone took the two front break pad wear indicators and just wire nutted the two ends together, I suspect they were damaged by letting brakes go to far. Anyway will this give an ABS light and traction control light?

There is no relationship between the brake wear sensors and the ABS light. I have had mine twisted together for about 10 years and no ABS light.

I agree.. no issue due to unused sensor wires for brake wear. mine are disabled also.
