When Should I replace my Brake Wear Sensors?
They should be changed whenever the pads are replaced or when the vehicle’s warning light indicates.

How to determine if the wear sensors are malfunctioning?
Visually check the wear sensor contact and brake pad for excessive wear. Replace if parts show excessive wear. When the pad material reaches a predetermined low point, the rotor makes contact with the sensor, breaks the electronic circuit which trigger the the light on the dash.

What does a Electronic Brake Pad Wear Sensor do?
The electronic brake pad wear sensor, or brake wear indicator, is a modern day replacement for the mechanical wear indicator. These physical indicators will make contact with the rotor and create an auditable screech informing the driver that the pad material is running low. Modern day electronic indicators send a signal which turns on a light in the dash and perhaps a beep to accompany it instead.

What should I do if my Brake Wear indicator light is on?
The indicator light is thrown on when the signal is made that the brake pads need to be replaced. If the light appears, a licensed mechanic should inspect the brake components for wear and life. In most situations a brake job will need to be performed consisting of a rotor and pad replacement. At this time you also replace the wear sensors as they are designed to fail as the pads wear.

Where are the Pad Sensors located?
Customers often ask how do I know if I have electronic wear sensors, and how do I install them. The brake pad wear sensor is clipped on to the brake pad and wired through the caliper in one or all four wheels.

Will a malfunctioning Brake Pad Wear Sensor also illuminate the indicator light on the dash?
Yes, if a certified mechanic inspects the brake system and finds that the rotors and pads are fine, in some situations a pad sensor can fail on its own, which would also require a replacement.
