C8 - Reset brake pad wear alarm?

Post by fantastic »

I have a Citroen C8 2.0 HDI 2011
I just changed the front rotors, pads + accessories (and leaky CV-Boot).
The pads came with cables, and I connected them to the cable plug.
However, when driving, I intermittently get the pads worn alert.

Did I make something wrong maybe?

Or do I just need to reset something somewhere in the car?

Thanks!

I'm not sure what relevance the picture has?

Those aren't new rotors and the only cable showing is for the ABS sensor not the brake pads....?

Hi Mark, I placed another picture with the pad cable.
That's the brake setup BEFORE I changed things.

Ok, the other picture was missing when I replied.

The only thing I can think of is that there is a short somewhere along the brake pad wear indicator harness causing the warning. It is not uncommon for these harnesses to become damaged over time. I would check back along the harness and make sure there are not exposed wires anywhere and again where the harness plugs into the adjoining harness.
