I don't run any sensors anymore, I clipped about 1" from the end that connects to the wheel carrier, stripped the two wires, twisted them together and insulated them, and I just check my pads visually. Since I have the wheels off all the time due to track work and brake bleeding, it works for me

I've actually got an extra sensor I can send you if you PM me your address. IF I can find it... It was only $5 or so from R O C K A U T O . C O M.
What Steve said. I've jumpered mine since it became an annoyance for me.
