Unhappy

Whenever I start my car, the light in the dash control panel for the brake light lining always comes on and stays on. The brakes in my car are fairly new and shouldn't be having any problems this early, as far as I know. I was wondering if this might be an electrical problem, and if there was any way for me to reset it and see if it comes back on. Please help! Thanks!

If you replaced the sensor when the brakes were done chances are there is a loose ground on the back of your cluster. My car his this problem, sometimes the light is on sometimes it isn't.
