Is it necessary to replace brake pad sensors if i replace the brake pads before the sensors have been tripped?

Nope, only have to replace if they are tripped.

Let me get this straight. If the warning is in yellow, its only a service reminder and the brake sensor has not been tripped yet meaning i can replace pads and reset the warning light without having to change the sensors. And if the warning is in red, the sensors have been tripped and must be changed to reset the warning light? Am i correct on this?

sometimes the computer will refuse to reset the warning light even if it is only yellow, you can try to reset and see if the computer will take it, if not, then you might need a new sensor or jump the sensor cable to reset the warning light.
