The pads wear warning light will go off when you renew pads and reconnect the wires to pad your pads are very low if this light is now on so check the actual discs for damage/scoring if there is then renew the discs as to fit new pads on scored discs will result in unnecessary rapid wear to new pads make sure you get correct pads/discs check if your discs are standard or vented discs? also whether your car hs ABS braking hope this helps

When i brake im getting a slight grinding noise but have no warning light on dash board?


brakes have pads (sometimes called shoes) that press against a round disc connected to the wheels that go round and round to stop the car moving. When the pads wear down you get metal rubbing on metal rather than a heat absorbing material rubbing on the metal disc.If you do not get your brake pads checked they can wear down / damage the metal disc and then have to spend lots of dollars getting the metal disc re - machined smooth (this disc is called a rotor) and new brake pads.
You are correct the warning light on the dash will not light up it will light up only if the hydraulic fluid used to press the pads onto the disc fails and you then fail to stop. .

2014 Ghibli. If I replace brake pads and discs does brake warning light turn off by itself or need to be reset?


If you're talking about brake pads that have an electrical connector..
the warning light comes on when the pad is so worn that it allows the electrical connector to earth via the disk .. hence the warning light.

Fitting new pads will not cause a warning light on your dashboard. No reset required.

Sounds like you need new brake pads , when the pads get worn it triggers the warning replace the brake pads reset the computer this should fix the noise and the warning lights.

The light in the dashboard is staying red for the brakes. Ihave checked the brake , they are released so why is the brake light staying red olease


Because the brake pads have sensors on and when they wear down too far, they activate the brake warning light. Time for new brake pads!

I have a orange warning light on, circle with 3 dashes either side ?


This symbol is for worn brake pads. When the pads wear down the sensors make electrical contact with the disc rotor and the light comes on as the circuit is completed. Check out brake pads all round, inmost cases the pads at the front wear down first. Check symmetry of wear. The pads should wear symmetrically and evenly either side of the brake disc. If the pads are wearing on just one side of the disc check that the caliper body is not seized and that the brake guide pins are allowing freedom of movement. It is always a good idea to replace all the pads on one axle at the same time as this ensures even braking. Remember, after replacing pads to pump the brake pedal until stiff prior to moving off so that you can be sure that you can stop when you have to.

I have a VW touran diesel 1.9. Recently there was a brake pad warning light indicated on my dash board, so I took it to my closest gargae to check. They replaced two new brake discs and the brake pads....


nope,it has to go back to a dealer(the computer is too expensive for a diy mech)they will reset it IF GENUINE parts have been used, as sensors are inbuilt into the pads.

BRAKE LIGHTS STAYING ON IN THE DASHBOARD


i´d say you missfitted the wearing sensors while changing the pad. they work that way, that when they get chassis contact, this triggers the dashboard light.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

I replaced the front pads on a VW JETTA 2.5 and the check pads light is on. How can I reset the check pads light?


As the brake pads wear, the brake pad wear sensor contained in the brake pad contacts the brake rotor. This causes the sensor to fail. When a pad wear sensor fails it opens the ground circuit of the pad wear warning light system causing the pad wear warning light to illuminate. Perform normal brake service to correct this condition and be sure to replace the brake pads with pads containing wear sensors. Once the brake pads and wear sensors are replaced, reset the brake pad warning system by turning the ignition switch to the "on" position. As long as continuity to ground exists through all the brake pad wear sensors the system should reset and the pad warning light in the dash will go out. If the pad warning light does not go out, a check of the pad warning circuit for an open circuit condition or poor ground must be performed.
