brake lining light on....

today i put my cluster back in after replaceing some bulbs and when i first start up the e30 (i never started it in like 2 weeks) the brake lining light stayed on. previously it has never come on. i even took it around the block to see if the brakes need to be loosened up after all that rain and ice and snow.....the light still stayed on. im thinkin it needs to be just driven some more and maybe with all the braking it will eventually shut off.....i also checked my connections at the back of the cluster and everything was in order..SOo ya does ne1 know or have an idea of why the light is comming on??
