2000 C200 Brake Pads

Do non-MB replacement pads have the inbuilt circuitry to operate the "brake" warning lamp when wear is sufficient to need replacement?

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.

They have exactly the same layout as OEM brake pads... as with OEM brake pads, you have to buy the sensors to make that brake warning lamp work.
