I am trying to retract the calipers to replace front rotors, brake pads and sensor. I wanted to make sure no errors comeup when I do this and I dont want to lose my fingers due to the caliper crushing my hand. Can someone help?

    You need a factory tool that will command the calipers to retract. I really would not mess with this system, unless you have the tools and the knowledge!
