Brake pad wear wires

#1
Sorry it may be in the wrong section - brakes or electrics?!
Quick question really. What will happen if the electrics for the pad wear wires are not connected up? Is it just a case that the warning light will not illuminate once the pads wear down or will it upset the operation of the light for handbrake/low fluid level too?

Yup the others wont work.
I don't have wires on the pads I have fitted, to get the system complete I push a double bullet connector over the terminals in place of the pad wire to complete the circuit.

As said above, the handbrake warning light won't work, you won't get a warning when the pads wear out, but the low fluid warning light will still work.
