Rear Brake sensor...idiot light, off
The "while I'm at it"....replace rear tire, notice need of brake pads.
Replace pads and sensor is worn down. Light is NOT on for first ride. Second ride, light goes ON. Pull on wire to check if broken. Plastic sensor (wire) holder breaks and comes out.
So I strip of some wire insulation. Twist the two exposed wires together and tape up. Just zipped tied it up so it doesn't look useless (it is). Go for a ride to the dealer for my 18k service. Sensor light is OFF.
