Mileage between the two stages of the front pad sensor

The first message for the brakes has come one and says I should service the car for brakes. It started at 1,000 miles and now says to do so within 400 some miles.

I understand the sensor has two stages that trip sequentially, the second actually been indicative of worn pads. As a matter of fact I've checked pads and there is still a certain amount of material.

I was wondering in general how many miles go by between tripping of the first and tripping of the second stage: I think I'll have more than 400 miles before pads are done.

Thanks!!

I'm attaching a picture of the wiring inside the sensor that shows the two stages.

I know, thats why I (sadly) thought it was a funny reply....



I was going to point out that the jump from 0 to 470 is infinitely less than the jump from 470 to infinity....

I recall some discussion on this over on xoutpost....

Another bump, sorry I have nothing on point.
