To my knowledge, there is only 1 brake-pad wear sensor and that is on the Rear Passenger-Side. I was sure to replace it, align the white connector and snap it in, and likewise attach the black end to the pad perfectly. Nevertheless, the warning screen on the display continued to show that the brake pad sensor was kaputt.

Any ideas? Perhaps a bad part?

I appreciate the help. Danke!
The brake wear indicator needs to be reset after replacing the sensor. Take a look at our Brake Light Reset article here. Yes, there is only one rear sensor on the right side.
