I didn't do anything to any of them yet. I'm wondering if a coding would be able to fix this so you no longer get the countdown at all. I pay enough attention to my pads I don't need the car to pretend its doing it even when the indicators are attached.

However, for a successful brake wear/service interval reset you must replace the brake wear indicator assembly with a new one or you will get a warning saying the pads must be replaced, regardless of previous pad wear.

Does anyone know if the above procedure results in the same signal to the car as you would get when fitting a new brake wear indicator cable?
You can use used indicators for this mod. Did it last week and after a reset of the brake service indicator everything is fine.

Sorry, cant tell from the photos. Question.

Which side of the clip is the splice done? Meaning, is the splice done before the box, or after? I wouldn't want to mess with the wires before the box, only if it's after, meaning, between the box/connector and the pad sensor (the "replaceable" section).

Thanks for the clarity!

I think I'll be doing this tonight on my front!

Not because I have aftermarket pads but, because I only have 22k miles and my yellow Brake indicator is on. There is PLENTY of meat on the pads!

According to this, the brake sensor is a Normally closed circuit and Open circuit on Alarm. So, in order to find which sensor has tripped, I should be able to take a multimeter and read 0ohm (or about) across it to find if its ok. Is this correct??

This is for all years of e9x? I have an 08..

EDIT:
Can this just be coded out? I would rather do that!

Better late than never but to answer your question, you would be modding the sensor cable (between the box and sensor). On the sensor cable, just cut a few inches down from the connector and splice the two wires together..

Well to answer my own question..

I pulled off the front wheels, measured the resistance of both sensors and I got 0ohms on both so I guess that's not my issue..
