Brake pad sensor warning light

I changed the rear pads yesterday but used the existing sensor, how do I clear the warning light on the dash
Vehicle is a 2003 E53 4.6

Was it as a result of the light coming on that you changed the pads? If the sensor had warned you of pad wear then it has been ‘tripped’ and needs replacing as well. They can’t be reset.
:ant: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

Yes, the light came on the dash, I'll order a new one. :thumbsup:
