Brake wear indicator light

I checked my brake pads three weeks ago, when I replaced the brake lights switches and bled the brakes.

The pads seemed fine with enough meat. The brake light indicator light is now on. Indicating either wear or a fault.

If it is wear - how long have I got?

If its faulty any ideas where to start looking?

Your question poses a few more questions: I assume that this light was not on prior to the pad changes and the sensors were not worn breaking the connection. After changing the pads, the sensors were replaced properly? Generally, new sensors should be replaced with the pads. They deteriorate/crack from heat often. I actually made a set of sensor adapters from an old pair that are just a looped connector that plugs in. No more annoying light. I remove/replace my pads from track to street 1/2 dozen times a year and the track pads don't have sensor slots. Being that your rotors cost over $200 a pop, I can see why you would want to be aware of your brake thickness. After checking all the connections, try replacing the sensors to start if you can't find the one that is at fault.
