There is no brake pad wear indicator on this vehicle. I assume you have a red brake warning lamp on, or is it the amber abs light. The red brake lamp could be lit from low fluid, a faulty low fluid sensor, a park brake that is partially on, a faulty park brake switch, and I believe thats it. First try pulling up on the park brake pedal, it may not be fully returned. Next, push down on the park brake pedal and see if the lights intensity changes to brighter, and this is slight but noticeable. If your automatic park brake release is not working, the pedal could be down enough to trigger the light, but not cause a significant drag. There is a manual release down by the park brake pedal, a metal lever that is not highly noticeable. If you have an owners manual it may show it, otherwise look down there with a light and try to locate it. Make sure the park brake is released fully. Disconnect the fluid level sensor on the master cylinder reservoir and see if the light goes off, if not short it with a paper clip or something. I am not certain if it is normally open, or normally closed. You will not cause any collateral damage by shorting it. See if any of this helps.
