If the light came on before you changed pads, you will need to replace the sensor.
The sensor consists of only a wire link embedded in a hard plastic. This is worn through when the pads are nearly worn out.

To check which sensor it is, it's easier to unplug the sensor, and check with a continuity checker. If there is no continuity, you need to replace it.

Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.

Brake wear visit work shop. merc e270

Mercedes brakes are setup with a pad wear indicator on the pads, one of the four pads in the front should have had a wire attached to it ( as well as in the rear brakes if 4 wheel disc). If this wire is broken or was't re-installed on the new pads, this will trigger the light on your vehicle, if all the wirs are connected properly and in place i would suggest taking it to the dealer to have them take care of the light. Hope this helps

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.

BAS/ASR warning light

You should get the code red by a dealer, if not and you have just changed the pads, then some time the code needs clearing, this merc can do for you or a good garage that has a DC. If not i may know man that can, let me know your area.
