Brake Pads have a built in sensor that triggers when pad gets too close to rotor. In some vehicles this can be adjusted. As regards to the Key Fob, try changing out the battery.If this does not work ,pay the man.Take it to your dealer.

Automan73, How long has it been since you last had brake pads replaced on this vehicle? Sometimes when the brake pads begin to wear out to the point where the pad has gotten really thin some auto makers put sensors on the brake caliper it's self in order to warn you ahead of time that you need to have your brakes checked, This is what I like to call the two bird's with one stone thing, You get your brakes checked before the pad's wear so thin that your brake disc's are nothing more than metal on metal..Also some times it is as simple as checking your brake fluid level, Again in some auto makers there are sensors inside of the master cylinder as well in order to monitor your brakes fluid level, in order to keep you from letting your master cylinder run completely dry when the fluid gets to a certain level it will automatically turn on your brake light or your ABS, and sometimes both just to be sure you get to a mechanic to have the problem checked...So I would do those two pretty simple things before I took it to a shop that may just end up telling you that you needed brake pads and no telling what else and all you really needed was a little brake fluid or just needed to replace your brake pads...hope I was of some help...

Can you show me the picture of brake lining wear and explain what that is? For Mercedes C230 2002

I can't show you a picture of brake lining wear but I can explain what it is. Brake lining wear is your brake pad wear. If the instrument cluster is showing "brake lining wear' ' visit workshop' it means your brake pads have worn down and are now at the brake pad wear sensor.

Changing rotors and brakes on ford expedition 99

I also have a 1999 model. What parts you want to use really depends on how much money you can spend. You can have the rotors turned (recut) but it takes time and if you want to keep the vehicle; new rotors will start out with the same potential life. Recut rotors will be different thicknesses and thin rotors will fail more quickly. You could end up with 4 different thicknesses.

The old brake linings will show how the calipers are working. You want even wear. You can also have Emergency brakes linings inside the rear rotors. With ABS and Traction control the wheel sensors can be fouled with brake debris so it is important for the E brakes to be in good shape.

I prefer Ceramic pads. They cost more, but are more heat resistant for towing and do not show brake dust. At least put them in front as most of the wear is in front. There is also a COP car pad with also works well but shows dust as it wears.

Tips for removal- Rust can be a big problem. The rotors will swell around the hubs in back of the rotor. A Dremel or cold chisel is necessary to remove the rust on the hub. Plenty of Rust solvent is needed. Eye protection is a must. You will need to draw in the Caliper pistons so you should have a big C clamp (Big Lots store) and use an old lining pad to press the pistons back. Also remove the brake rmaster cylinder cap before pushing in brake pistons.

New hardware is recommended and lube the slides with high temperature grease. Thats about it. Good Luck to you.

Key fob stopped working the door locks. I changed

the circuit boards on those factory remotes, sometime break where the battery is clipped in, check to make sure the solder is holding the clip properly and it is not loose, also they remote may need to be programmed to the vehcile with a scan tool, usually only found at GM, Also the rubber part of the remote on the inside where the pad touchs the circuit board, uses a small screwdriver and touch the exposed circuit, if the remote locks the doors, try putting in tiny peice of alumumn tape of the inside pad, the connectiveness of the rubber wears off. If not try above or dealer.
