Customer Question
Hi, I changed the...

Hi, I changed the front pads of my 2017 hard top 1.5 l but the warning light does not turn off. I used the same sensor line since it looked in good condition the car has only 6000 km

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The warning that shows on the center computer screen telling me to change the brake pads

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 6000?

2017 it has 6000km

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 6000 yourself? What have you tried so far?

It is ready is working great I just used the same sensor line did not use the new one. is there a way to turn the warning off without going to the dealer

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thank you
