The delay was caused by the door sensor and not the brake check IMO.

I had an aborted take off (with Channel 9 on!) on a 738 DEN-SEA a year or two ago. Midway through the roll the runway sensors went off indicating an unauthorized vehicle on the runway. Tower told the pilot to abort so he hits the brakes hard and keeps the plane on the center line the whole time. After coming to a stop we got off the runway and parked there for about 30 minutes while the brakes cooled down. Once they did they were inspected, considered good and we got back in line for take off. Never went back to the terminal which was a bonus. Note: there was dense fog in DEN at the time so the tower had to rely on the sensors at the runway thresholds instead of their eyes. Maybe a bad sensor that day.
