Check the new pads for a tiny hole about the diameter of #2 pencil lead
in one edge of the pad bored parallel to the face of the pad. The brake
warning indicator is an insulated pin that plugs into that hole. When
the pad wears down sufficiently to wear through the edge of that hole,
through the insulation, and allows the pin to ground itself on the brake
rotor, your warning light comes on. Any pads that have this hole bored
parallel to the face *should* be compatible with the warning system.

pads, you have to buy the sensors to make that brake warning lamp
