The system is not that sophisticated. On older bmw's when the sensor would wear down... it would open the wire circuit and the pad light would come on. Many a shade tree mechanic would just cut off the old sensor and solder or crimp the pad sensor wires together. Then the light would be off. I wonder IF our cars system is so crude. ?
