Do you know if there is a similar procedure to "kill" the brake pad warning light on a D3? I seem to recall seeing a fix. There are issues with the rear elect parking brake on D3s that can turn on the pad light, but that is not the case with mine which is something in the wiring between the pads and the dash. I remember it was some kind of connector in the drive side footwell panel. Wish i had saved it somewhere.

private message is probably the best way to reach me.
Hi Jim,

Sorry, I don't speak D3 ...Very different brake and suspension system ... don't even have service manual info on those.

Is your warning intermittent? Mine lights up after the first freeze, and usually most freezing mornings subsequent, but along with parking brake light IIRC, which tells me it's probably a connector outside the car. It's usually above 32F here, and I am lazy (especially when it's below 32F ) , so I haven't researched it much.... Wondered if you'd had any luck tracking it down?
Thanks,
-Tom
