Thanks for the great write-up. Question: My rear brake pad wear sensor broke when I tried to remove it from the pad. Now a yellow "BRAKE" idiot light comes on every time I start my 135. I taped up the cracked broken end with electrical tape and zip-tied the wire to secure it. I replaced my pads with CarboTech Bobcat (1521) aggressive street pads and as mentioned earlier they don't support the sensors. Do I have to replace the broken rear brake pad wear sensor to get the yellow "BRAKE" light in the instrument cluster to turn off even though I do not plan using it? Or is the only way to turn that message and yellow "BRAKE" light off is to go to the dealer to have them reset it?
