Brake Sensor

Hey all,
my brake sensor went off and i replaced my brakes, and the rear brake sensor. Does anything need to be done in order to turn off the light in my dash? or is it that the front brake sensor was also set on and needs replacement. If there is something that needs to be done to reset it, please let me know.
thanks

yeah after replacing the brake sensor turn the ignition key on and leave on for approx. 2 minutes this resets the brake pad wear warning light

^^ If that doesn't work (I didn't even know it was necessary to be honest ), either your front wear pad sensor is teh culprit, or you have a lose connection of some sort in the one you replaced.

Good luck

Check if your front pads are low...
