Break Pad Error Message Question?

What's up Forum!

So this morning I get into the ride on the way to work and I see on the idrive I have an error message for the break pads.

So I review the maintenance on the screen and both the front and rear still have some time to go and are not giving off any messages. But I get the triangle stating that the break pads need changing.

Is this a sensor issue?

Any help would be great. Thanks guys,

The warning shows up at about 8k miles left.

I changed all the pads and sensors two months ago and didn't have any issue until two weeks ago, with the same issue as you but only for the rear pads. After an inspection of the rear sensor, I noticed that one of the wires was cut, meaning that the car thinks there's no sensor.

Not sure about your brake pad conditions, it could be that the brake pads are thin and that you need to change them or it could be that the brake pad sensors aren't working properly.

Thanks for the help.

I guess I just need to jack up the car and trouble shoot the sensors. Here are the pics for the messages that I get.
