2006 rear brake sensors

Do the 2006 Passats have rear brake sensors (to detect wear) or are they ONLY on the front? My brake sensor light did not come on and I am being told that I need rear brakes and rotors.
Thanks

Changed front pads and rear shoes, now abs light stays on


A common problem with fords. The brake pads and shoes are semi-metalic, and the abs sensor is magnetic. With time and wear from the old pads, and dirts and road grime, All of these things build up on the sensor. Fortunately this is usually a simple fix. If you don't already have this on had, go to you closest parts store and get a can of Brake Cleaner. The cheapest will do just fine. Locate the abs sensor ( usually on the hub assembly ) and spray them off. Be generous with the brake cleaner. By the time you crank your car back up, this light should be gone.

Brake pad wear indicator light does not go off at the dash after changing rotors brake pads and the sensor in the front wheels all pads and rotors and the sensor is ok at rear. the vehicle has only 30000...


Did you change the sensor? if you did, do a battery reset (disconnect for 10 to 20 min.).

Obviously the wear sensor has made contact with the rotor and is already damaged. You're not even suppose to resuse the wear pad sensor if its worn or damaged anyways.The way how the sensor works is that it must make contact to the rotor to complete the wear pad light indicator circuit. There is no mentioning that he replaced the the wear pad sensor with a new one.

But if one did replaced the wear pad sensor and the wear pad indicator is lit up, the way to reset it is to leave the key on in ignition switch #2 or #1 for about 30sec. turn it off and its reset.

Its possible that you forgot to replace the brake light sensors. They are about 15 bucks, and have to be replaced in order for that light to turn off. You can either get them from the dealer where they'll likely charge you 3 times as much, or you can go to http://www.turnermotorsport.com and get them there.

You have to reset the light by leaving the ignition switch on position #2 for about 30 sec. turn off the ignition and start the engine up and see if it goes out. I recommend buying a new wear pad sensor as well because now light will lit up when you're way below spec (less than 3mm)

Also, you could try with this procedure for one E39: Turning off the Check Brake Linings warning on the Instrument Cluster...
- so you've just changed the brake pads on your E39, along with the wear sensors. The old sensor(s) needed replacement cause you waited a bit too long before changing the pads, and wore through the sensor(s), turning on the BRAKE light on the dash. But wait, the light is still on? But there's a new sensor installed... what gives?!
- there is a procedure required in order to turn off the light/warning. With the ignition off, step on and hold the brake pedal. Now, while holding the brake pedal down, turn on the ignition switch to position 2 (just before cranking). Hold the brake pedal until the BRAKE light is off. Tada, the warning is gone and reset.

NOTE: This procedure worked on a 2001 E46 325i. It took about 15-20 seconds, but it cleared out w/o having to unhook the battery.

How do i reset brake ware indicator on my 1999 lexus ls400


The brake wear indicator is a small metal stone-like sensor that attaches to the brake pad. Once the pad wears down to a certain level, it begins wearing into the sensor, breaking the circuit open.


Once the light has come on, the appropriate sensor (front or rear) must be replaced to return functionality.
Factory brake pads usually come with new sensors. Aftermarkets do not, and often have no provisions for attaching them either.

Alternately, you can bypass the brake level sensors by splicing the two wires for the sensor together. You will no longer have brake level warnings if you do this however.

Service warning messages


did you change the brake pad wear sensors in the front and rear pads as well? you may have a bad connection or broken wire to the wear sensors on one of the wheels. sometimes there is a sensor on each wheel and sometimes just 1 front side and 1 rear side, the sensor has a single wire and they slide into the inside brake pads, if your brakes wear down to the point of hitting this sensor you need to replace it and they are pretty cheap about $25 for all four you may just try changing them first before spending $80 at the dealer for an hour diagnosis, if you figure anything out let me know so i can help, good luck and please rate this -Jeff

Brake warning lining wear


Yes the parking brake uses a small set of brake shoes that act on a drum built into the rear rotor. There is no wear sensors on the parking brakes. There are however wear sensors on the front and rear brake pads. If your brake pad warnig light is on I would have the service brake pads inspected. 82210425
