Put a jumper between the contact points in the wire from the fenderwell to
the caliper where the sensor wire is supposed to go.  Some folks have used
a paperclip.  The wire in the pads maintains a circuit that gets broken
when the pads wear past the sensor point.  The open circuit triggers the
signal on the dash.  The jumper maintains the circuit in the absence of a
sensor-type pad.
