Some European OE manufacturers now request Akebono products for their North American vehicles.

          A:

          With reference to the Akebono Ultra Premium Ceramic Disc Brake Pad Kit - Part No. EUR340A, the electronic sensors provide a warning light for the driver as well as a less intrusive way of indicating pad wear. When this wire circuit is interrupted, either completing or breaking the circuit, the pad wear warning light will be activated on the instrument panel. The down side to all this is by the time the drivers light comes on the sensors circuit has already been broken often requiring sensor replacement. These sensors work great, can be tested with an ohmmeter. The other wear sensor is the audible wear sensor in which a small metal tab is attached to one of the pads. The tab rubs against the rotor when the lining wears thin. The noise that results alerts the driver that brake work is needed before serious damage occurs to the rotor. Audible sensors are the most common type of wear sensors. The noise that they make is often heard when the brakes are not applied, when the sensing tab drags and vibrates against the rotor. This is the basic difference between these 2 sensors. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
