Any thoughts?
Did you reset the OBC when you changed the pads 20,000 miles ago? Who did the brake work? Did they replace the sensor? Are you sure it is not telling you the front pads need replacement? The best rule of thumb is to wait until the light comes on that indicates the pads need replacement. The OBC mileage is just an estimate.
