    Isn't (0) a brake pad low warning.

    Probably just the wire is damaged if someones had the hub apart.

    Rear pads don't have sensors.

    Be the fronts but like I said the wires are pretty weak so may well have just snapped which will bring up the warning.

    Ye it is the brake pad wear sensor. Dont worry though as you have about another 1000 miles before they need changing.

    As already mentioned, it wont be your back brakes, they dont show up on your dash they will be the front ones that need changing, either that or the wire has snapped.

    I get warning lights all the time, nothing to panic about.

    You only have a sensor on the passenger side front.
