[modern] Silly Brake Sensor!

You could either silicone it back in place, or simply replace it. Sounds
like either the small retaining clip has been lost or has lost it’s pizzaz
to hold it in. Or the backside section may have broken off. Simple enough
to replace and not an expensive part.

The wire that run from my F(ront)-R(ight) brake pads to the ECU recently decided to disconnect itself from my brake pads. I noticed my brake pad low warning was on during my commute to work a few weeks ago. When I arrived at work and checked under the car I noticed that the wire was nolonger connected and it had been skipping along on the road beneath me. I plugged the wire back in and assumed that would be the end of troubles. SILLY ME!!! Halfway home the brake pad low warning came on again. When I pulled into the garage I got out and checked the wire and, once again, it disconnected. Any suggestions?

Larry,

Don’t forget that on the '88’89 cars the brake pad wear sensor comes as
part of the pads; it is not a separate part. To get a new sensor, he’ll
have to replace the pads.
