360 Brake pad question

Discussion in '360/430' started by I'm 360 Canuck, May 17, 2019 at 11:42 PM.

  1. quick question: when pads are changed to aftermarket ones that do not incorporate the pad sensor, does that trigger a CEL?
    Just wondering because I put on EBC pads and left the sensor disconnected and now have a CEL, but wondering if it’s a coincidence?

    Replacing brake pads and not reinstalling the brake pad wear sensor will not trigger a CEL.

    I recently changed my front rotors and pads and tucked away the sensor and I get no CEL.

    Perhaps you should read the CEL first. What code?

    And yes, do a fault code reading to determine what the anomaly is.
