Yes, I changed the brake pads and the warning light in the dash remains on.

Anyway, nvm, I figured it out. Please do not reply.

Send a message via MSN to Quack
the brake warning light comes on when the brake wear sensor makes contact with metal (ie: brake rotors), so if your brakes are not applied the light might go off, if your brake pads are really worn out, it is possible that the sensor got knocked right off causing the light not to come on, another thing that might cause the light to come on is the sensor wire rubbing against the rim, seen that many times
