Flickering "Brake Pad" Dash Light

I have a 93 400SEL. My brake pad's are almost new, but I have a flickering brake pad light even when I am not applying the brakes. Any ideas what it may be?

Check the sensors, might be loose.

^^^What he said. Loose or damaged brake pad sensor.

Yeah, actually it's good practise to replace the sensors (they're really cheap!) each time that you replace the pads.

check your brake fluid level - may be low
