  1. The service manual directs you to disconnect the negative battery cable before servicing the brake pads. If you don't, by the time you turn the truck on, you'll get two codes: a brake control module code saying it lost hydraulic pressure, and another code telling the ECM to turn on the check engine light. You can clear these codes and restart the truck and it should be fine. The manual states that the brake system on the truck goes through automated self-tests and compressing the calipers with the battery connected messes with the computer. Has nothing the do with brand of brake pads or anything at all, just disconnect the battery for the brake job. At the end of the brake job, you can reconnect the battery terminal and pump the brake pedal before turning the ignition on. Then there's no lights.
