How to disable Brake pad wear sensors

Just put new Ratora calipers on and the pads do not accept the pad wear sensors, how can I disable the light?

Cutting the wires to the sensor and joining the wires together is what I have read. Can anyone else confirm this?

Be patient, it will take about a minute with the ignition on for the light to reset.

you could just buy new ones and leave them plugged into the car but ziptie them to the strut or something.

Did not work. Even after waiting a few minutes. I think I will just buy new ones and zip tie them.
