Car is 2000 manual.
The brake light is on now since a while.
Pads inspection show 'good' (changed less than a year ago).
How does the pad wear indicator work?
Can I disable it by (depending on the circuit layout):
- short it (most likely, the sensor is looking for closed circuit that gets interrupted when the pad wears down)
- short to ground
- short to +12V
What else can cause the light to come on?
Will VAGcom or OBDII pick it up?
I checked the sensor connector front left. Sensor measured no resistance (open).
I shortened it at the connector, no change.
I ran VAGcom, no code. Erased all codes. Still on.
I read that the Beetle only has a sensor front left. Is there another one at the front right that could cause the light?
