Brake Pad Sensor

Brake Pad Sensor

A brake pad sensor monitors the condition of your brake pads. This allows your car to alert you to any wear and tear. Replace your faulty brake pad sensors and get more for your money at Car Parts 4 Less.
A brake pad sensor monitors the condition of your brake pads. There are two main types: electrical and mechanical. An electrical sensor works with the aid of a wire loop inside a rubber casing. When the pad becomes worn or frayed, this breaks the wire loop and alerts the car's electronic control unit (ECU). The ECU then prompts a warning light to appear on your dashboard. A mechanical sensor is a piece of metal that clips to the brake pad. When the brake pad wears down, the metal sensor comes into contact with the disc. This creates a circuit and causes a loud squealing sound. Whatever type of sensor you're looking for, you can be sure to find what you need at Car Parts 4 Less.
