Premature wear on brake sensor?

I had new discs and pads (with new genuine wear sensor) on the rear 3 weeks ago, since then done about 1000 miles. IDrive popped up today saying 1500 miles until rear pads need replacing! Drove 15 miles home and now idrive says 1300 miles!

I've checked the outside pads and they've plenty of meat and neither of the alloys are hot, so don't suspect sticky caliper.

Duff sensor?

Same thing happened to me. Sensor is either bad or was installed incorrectly. I had a shop replace mine as mine was installed by the dealer incorrectly, go figure. It would read 100 miles less about every 5 miles I drove even though there was a ton of pad left.
