Why would the battery be disconnected for front brake pads? Did a garage do this? Srange!!! Roof sensors and switches out of sync after battery removal. Needs competent technician and GT1 computer to sort out.
i would suggest if your going to do a brake job and you are unsure how to do this , take it to a repair shop to have them installed correctly this is a major need and safety issue to you and to others but a few tools are required yes .
there is nothing special about replacing the wear sensors. The tools that you will need are 7mm allen, 16mm 6 point socket, ratchet, T-50, large channel locks, and a keyed pad pusher for the rear calipers.
Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights
it may be time for new brake pads, and you usually want to replace your rotors when you change pads, you can get away with not doing and instead take it to a shop and get them "turned"
if you want to see for yourself if it's time for new brake pads just remove one of your wheels and look at your brake pads (they are the what actually make contact with your rotor) and if the pad itself is less than the width of about 2 or three credit cards, then it's time for new pads.
