When you do a brake job you have to replace the sensor as well or the little light will not go off. That or it isn't connected anymore.

Hey, guys and gal noticed today the check light flashes only as i start the car, then it goes off. The brake lining light stays on(perhaps it needs new pads and sensor), same for the inspection light(never reset).

Thanks for your suggestions,
