    Yeah mine flashes here and there, I'm going to top off my brake fluid and see if there is a noticeable difference.

    Assuming there is no leak, as the pads wear down, the level of brake fluid in the system drops even though the volume of fluid stays the same. If your light is coming on, check for leaks first, then for worn pads. Rarely, the switch may become faulty, but I've only seen that once in my life and I've owned cars for over two decades.

    Where should I be looking for leaks? I haven't noticed any for quite some time from what I can tell, but I am wanting to check more thoroughly with some guidance on where to look. As I don't know much, still learning as I go.

    Each brake manufacturer will have slightly different bedding procedures. Your brake pads should have info with them.
