The system seems to have two modes of intervention: cutting power and applying the brakes. I guess that is kind of obvious. I am inclined to believe when power is cut or major braking interventions are made, the light flashes for sure. I am also inclined to believe that the light does not flash when minor braking interventions are made although I have no proof. I am primarly basing that on how much more stable the car was at WGI after I turned MDM off (WGI is particularly bumpy at places and I didn't see the light flash much at all but the front pads were worn rather unevenly), and perhaps on a similar experience I had at turn 10 at NHMS where the surface is rather bumpy at the exit down the hill, but at that point the light will flash for sure if you throw the car around.
