    Ive posted this before, but maybe the subject wasn't very clear.

    Basically, after i turn on the ignition, i sometimes get the big BRAKE warning light come on (exclamation mark in a circle with brackets), it flashes, and beeps 3 or 4 times.

    It normally happens when the car hasnt been used all day, ie first time in the evening or morning, etc.

    It doesnt happen when driving, or when the cars heated up a bit.

    Any "more" clues...its buggin me.

    Your pads are wearing out. As you drive and heat up the pads, they expand and then the sensor thinks your pads are good.
