Brakes

I recently changed my 2006 C350 brakes after the visit repair shop warning came on. I bought a set of Duralast brakes and they did not have the opening to plug in a sensor. Is there any way to remove the warning light message with brakes installed with no brake sensor opening.

Do you have picture of the sensors? All MB sensors I know are single wire grounding to the rotor when it comes close to it. Meaning no sensor = no light EVER.
I had situation on Audi, where 2 wires sensors are breaking the circuit. Cutting off the wires of old sensor and connecting them together did the trick.

Don't worry, in a thousand miles or so, you'll be replacing those brakes once the squeaking drives you crazy. You can then put pads in that do have the sensors.

Thanks to you both, currently the front has no sensor so Im going to check the back brakes and see how they look although I had a shop change them a year ago. If they are not worn then I know they did not replace my pads/shoes.

THanks
