[s-cars] Brake wear sensor question

If shorting the two pins on the car side of the connector would not work
and the other side of the car is fine then you have a break in the
wiring harness and you'll have to cut and short it farther upstream.  My
break was right where the wires entered the engine bay.

Subject: [s-cars] Brake wear sensor question


Have brake lining symbol illuminating on OBD. Looking at FL caliper I
disconnected broken connector going to sensor and taped connector going
"car" side.
Well.. I don't really care about that sensor (where do I get it from??)
I need to turn off that light. Not sure, but afraid they might turn me
around at safety inspection.

I see 3 pin "mother" connector and 2 of the pins seem to be having
copper in
it :) Shortening them together would not remove light.

Any ideas?

Also, I read somewhere Audi has 1 brake sensor. Is it true or there is
another one on a back like in my BMW?
