About About Brake Pad Life Monitoring

The Brake Pad Life Monitor helps predict wear of your vehicle’s brake pads. It provides an estimate of the remaining life of the pads to help you plan when it’s time to change them.

How It Works

The Brake Pad Monitor software uses vehicle information to estimate pad wear. It uses sensors to adjust its estimates based on your driving habits, getting more accurate over time.


Brake pad life displays in the cluster. When the system determines the brake pads need to be replaced, you’ll see a message in the cluster that shows their estimated mileage remaining.


The pad life monitor must be reset when the brake pads are replaced.

For your security, please don’t include personal info such as phone number, address or credit card details.
