Warning lights for rear brake pad keeps coming on

Last week the warning lights for the rear brake pads came on so I took my car in for service. The technician examined my brakes and said they're fine and no replacement was needed. The warning lights came on too early, so he resetted the warning.

Now a week later, the warning lights for thr rear brakes are on again. What do you think is going on? Are the sensors broken?

I just took it back to the dealer and they did another reset. So far the warning lights did not come on.

Could this be something due to ice/snow build-up in your tropical Canadian climate?

Get the dealer to change out the pad wear sensors one on the front and the other on the rear.

Update.

My rear brakes were done at 33,000KM.
One of the reason the brakes went earlier then average is because my car sat on the lot for a year before I bought it. Sitting outside for months without driving rust builds up and cause for uneven brake ware.
