now you need to change the brake sensor as well. Once you see the light, you have to change the sensor.

Can you explain when the brake sensor activates and why it needs to be replaced once it goes off? I would like to replace my pads before this occurs. Thanks

The sensor goes off because the material on your brake pads are getting low, and as for replacing them once it goes off...dunno. Sensors are probably around the $15 to $20 range.
