    I think hes saying because you typed it all in capitals it seems as though your shouting it.

    That and with all the abbreviations and lack of punctuation it wasn't the easiest post to read. Personally, I try to write a full and informative post - especially when asking others for help or advice. But that's just me!

    If your having problems with the brake pad sensors they I'd disconnect them and use a piece of wire to bridge the connections (which will fool the car into thinking they're fine) and then change back to OEM when you next need pads...

    No offence taken and I think most posts above were really just offering friendly advice. There does seem to be a certain amount of forum etiquette expected when asking for help. Just take a bit longer writing your posts and try to be as informative as you can. It definitely helps and most of the time you will get good honest and informative answers... abbreviations, text talk and caps lock seem to be the best way of getting people's backs up to be honest!

    Linking or bridging the connectors on your brake sensors is probably the best way to lose your error light and will mean you can keep the pads you have until they wear out. If you would prefer to have the warning light working properly then I expect changing back to OEM pads is your best option.

    Sorry for the digs and I hope it hasn't put you off using this forum!
