Mine came on when I was at Road Atlanta braking from 120 MPH to around 60 at the end of the back straight, I knew there was plenty of front pad left as I visually inspected between sessions. My light came on because the sensor overheated and melted. Oddly later in the day it went out. Now I have removed all brake sensors and just visually inspect my brake pads since I am in there often enough to do so.

If you get them good and hot they can melt and give a false reading.
