I knew my brake wear sensor wire broke a while back and i just left it alone knowing that i must replace it, SO used the old electrical tape trick and connected the wire. I used a probe tester to test if my trick has worked and it did, But when i turn on my car the BRAKE LINING light still stays on. I have checked both my rigged sensor in the front and the sensor in the back and they're working.. FINE. i just don't know what else.

yeah yeah i did it all. lol. uhm pads are new, so lining is perfect. i spliced the wires.. how do i take out the bulb?
if the pads wore down and then the light came on, you need to replace the sensor. the sensor has a rubber like material that wears away as well. its not a button. once the sensor has been activated it cant be deactivated, you need a new sensor

Use a sharpie, or if you want it to look nice, just disconnect the light, so it never lights up. Sensors like that break all of the time in e30s, and most of the time you'll waste hours trying to track down the source. Just feel lucky it's not something more important like an idle-controlling fuse. :(
