Brakes were done all around. I did take it into the shop Friday night and found that the wire running to the sensor was making contact with the rim - wore away the insulation and grounded.

Garage tried to splice the wire but light stayed on. Thought it might be a faulty sensor - had one in stock but changing it did not remedy the situation. I have been going to this garage for a few months but I'm always open to suggestions. PM sent.

Thanks
