I had a flickering brake wear lamp too. Found when I changed the pads that one pad had worn enough to expose the sensor end slightly. The other three still had a hair or two of material left leaving the sensors fully covered.

I was surprised at the amount of pad left once the sensor made contact. Nice feature, no reason to ever get metal to metal.
