    Does the red light come on when the front brake pads need changing?

    no, the red light comes on to tell you that either the handbrake is on or there is a MAJOR problem with the braking system, probably brake fluid level is too low.

    good luck

    (Hmmn, just rethinking this, we may have all been suckered. Which red light ? If it's the one on the back, it's to tell the driver behind you are braking)

    I've just dropped it off at the local garage to have the front pads changed, €100.00...
