Brake Censors failed for the 4th time????

For some reason the censors for my breaks keep malfunctioning, they say I need my brakes changed in 349,000 miles. This is the 4th time its happened and the dealer fixes it by resetting them, but it will end up happening again and they cant tell me why..

Any ideas?

Could I lemon a car for that?

The sensor is built into the pads so if anything, you may just have the pad(s) replaced.

Lemon a car for brake sensors???

Have they actually replaced the sensors, or just reseated them? If they have been replaced, then it might just need a software update to take care of the issue.
