OK. In that case...

Replace the pads all round as you know they are low. Then check the fluid level and top up if required. Then monitor the level.  :y

Is the fluid actually low. Visually check.  Its not unheard of for the float to be faulty, or (as was the case with my beloved Silver Bullet) a loom fault give the same intermittent flicker.

Had similar flickering on one of my omegas. Checked fluid level which was fine, checked handbrake switch witch seemed fine. Finally traced it down to poor connection on the back of the instrument. Bent/cleaned the tabs on the connector a bit and problem went away.
