Brake Pad Wear Sensors in the 1988-1994 XJ6 Jaguar
The XJ40 (1988-1994 XJ6) has little sensors in the brake pads that let you know when the pads have worn down to their minimum safe level. Pretty handy, eh? The 1988-1989 XJ6 has the sensors built into the pads, so when you buy pads for these cars, they come with the sensor automatically. The 1990-1994 XJ6 has a separate sensor that plugs into the pad, so the sensor does not come with the pads and is sold separately. Fortunately, the sensors can usually be reused on the 1990-1994 cars. If the pads wear down to the point that you get a brake pad warning light, you'll usually need to buy new sensors.
