Sounds like you may have a broken wire or bad connector from the connector side away from the sensor. Try paper clip first at contacts in connector to see if lite goes away. If problem still there strip insulation a little on each wire and jumper together to see if it goes away.

OK, I changed my pads and the sensors, but the msg didn't go away, so about 30 starts later, I used the old sensors to make jumper plugs at each wheel...but I still get the msg. I think I have a wiring problem. Does anyone have the pinouts for the ECU so that I can trace it?
