The problem might be in the wiring (wheel well). On my car, one of the wires broke internally. I had to splice in a new pigtail. I surmise that the wire broke from fatique caused by the constant up and down motion of the front wheel. I discovered this problem when the warning message would go away whenever the front end was up on a jack. As soon as the car was lowered, the message would return. Try moving the wire around (take it out of the support brackets first) and see if you can get the message to go away briefly.

I have also a problem with Brake Linings.
Only the problem is, that check control still shows message "Brake Linings" although I have replaced both, the linings and the sensors.
Could there be a simple solution to that, I wouldn't like my car to be taken apart searching the reason for this. Thanks.
