Just swapped my track pads out back to street - in the same boat, the ebrake light is on in red. Ebrake isn't up. Going to replace sensors, and check fluid level, then reset via dash. Hopefully this resets.

Maybe I should explore the splice solution before I replace the sensors.

Well - I opted for the splice, but using the new sensors (because why not work with a clean connector). What's interesting is the reset is only 8k mls Rears and 12k mls Fronts. Seems really low...

To get back sync with this thread, I've been really enjoying the Stoptechs on track and street. Swapping the pads is super simple on the 40's, while the 60's bridge connector is unnecessarily tight. All in all, love them!

Save the old sensors for the next reset if you can.

Edit: nevermind just saw that they're worn out.

When I got new sensors (Pagid ones cheap from Rockauto), I used metallic tape to get them sticking to the brake fluid line going to the caliper without much slack so they don't get damaged.

In my opinion, it's impossible to change brake pads without destroying the brake pad wear sensors.

I just cut the wires off about 6" from the plug. Then I tie the ends together. Just unplug the sensor when the countdown hits zero
