Brake Pad Indicator

Hello all,

Well with only 5300 miles on the 07GT, I was tearing up some mountain roads and the red low pad indicator light came on and won't go off. I pulled over under a giant sequioa tree and inspected the pads. They all have plenty of material left. I checked all the pad wear indicator wires and they are all plugged in. Any one else had this problem? I thought i'd ask before i make the 45 mile ride to the dealer.

There have been a few reports of this behavior. I believe that the sensor is either not in the proper place, or the wire to it has become disconnected or has a short in it. Boy...that really narrows it down, huh? :wtf
