brakes issue

So recently my brakes have begun squealing, and some time I even hear a light grinding nose when I brake. today i went to change my pads and they are far from depleted and there is no damage to my rotors. The brake pad light on my dash is even on. Any insight into this problem?

What is the condition and installation of the wear sensors? They can come loose, or be installed improperly.

Make sure to replace sensors with new ones so the light will go off
