brake pad warning light on dashboard

Recommended Posts

recently the brake pad warning light on the dashboard showed itself for the first time. thing is the discs and pads were changed not all that long ago, 6 months tops. there was an issue in December when one of the handbrake retaining pins sheared off and was clunking around in the caliper for a journey but that was fixed. the car has had issues with its handbrake before I bought it. it was purchased off my mum and dad  and dear old mum is one of those that likes to stretch the cable to it maximum just to make sure the car doesn't move. could issues with the handbrake cause the pad warning light to illuminate?

cheers

Handbrake won't affect pad warning. The pad warning sensor is on one of the front pads, and one of the rear pads.

Check the pads and sensors.
