    Brake pad warning indication

    Hi again,

    My car has suddenly started showing the Brake Pad Warning indication.

    All brake pads are Fine. Does this sound like a dodgy connection.

    I have the ESP and ABS light coming on for about 2 months, this new pad wear indication has just started happening so I don't think it is connected.

    Kwik Fit could not find any problems

    If you know your pads are fine and just want to get rid of the wear indicator light,then scotch-clip the two wires together that come out of the front pads... job done

    As above

    OR - it could be a broken wire in the system...

    Mine is doing this too with about 5mm of pad left. I have been told by my mechanic mates that nowadays that is about the right amount of pad left for the pad wear sensors to be activated.

    Sounds like a bit of a con to me to make me buy new pads before I need them

    Current Car:

    Pic soon

    Gone but not forgotten:

    I had this, checked pads and were fine. Went through MOT and I got an advisory on the front discs that they were undercutting.....
