Does it do it with the brake pad sensor disconnected?

That will rule out brake pad fault, and lead to wireing fault

just rip your pad wear sensors off. they only perish and give false warnings such as these you are seeing anyway

This has happened to me on a few occasions! I don't bother connecting the lead anymore.

Is that the same warning light as the handbrake light? could be the switch to the handbrake is loose / faulty
