Brake pad wear sensors

Despite having my brake pads replaced I still have the warning 'noise' of pads being low, can I disconnect the function as I have car checked on a regular basis & mileage per year is very low.

I doubt that there is a switch, I think they are designed to just make that noise when they reach a certain minimum thickness.

I had all mine done and they also used copper grease on them and they just make the noise, I keep meaning to pop back to the garage, but I've not had time, so I just put up with it for now.

Despite having mine since new I wasn't aware of this. Page 207 in the manual mentions about a squealing or scraping noise then have the pads checked. I have a noise from the rear sometimes when braking on downhill roads. I asked the garage to check them at the last mot and they said they were fine. You have got me intrigued as to why they do this.
