I had the same problem and check the brake fluid level - ok
Replaced the rear pads - some wear
Still the light stayed on
Try putting an electrical metre on the Sensor itself
That's what mine was.
Hope it works for you

Hi,

Initially, pls try checking the level of brake fluid in the reservoir above the master brake cylinder.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

sorry to tell you this but it sounds like the wheel bearing was put in backwards on one or both sides. the front wheel bearings have a black speed ring built in and that is what your speed sensor reads off. - this is common as the front bearings will install either way- hope this helps

there is no reset. if the light is still on, there is a problem with one of the pad sensors or the connection. also, make sure that the front pads are not worn enough to trigger the light.

Got a guy to change break pads for me on my car. breaks now drag


i assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably shoes..is it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together wrong..id say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!
