"Brake Pad Wear" Message

Obviously it's telling me to get some new pads. However, I had my mech change my pads last week, but the stupid message stays on. He even installed new sensor for the brakes. Any ideas?

By the way, check out the pads, they're called ThermaSoft by Wagoner. So far so good. Before these, I had the Akebono Euroceramic Brake Pads--save your money because they don't reduce brake dust.

If you did fronts only you might want to check the rears; there is usually one side that has a wear sensor.

If that isn't the issue, check the plug-in connections and also look for one that was damaged when the mech put it back to together.

If you have new pads on all 4 wheels and a + in the fss one of the sensors in the pad is defective.

brake wear lite ,ml-350

can't you just clip sensor wires on rear pads and add
wires together to reset lite instead of driving 55 miles to get new sensor.
when u change pads again they suggest new rotors anyways so midus well let them grind rite into disc?????

I bet you did not get Akebonos; maybe somebody substituted. For my cars, the difference was unbelievable.
