My brake sensor warning light lit up a short while ago, so I promptly ordered new pads, as well as new sensors (and kicked myself for not giving my brakes a visual inspection more frequently).

I finished installing everything today. The car brakes well, and everything would be in order, but for one thing: the warning light is still lit.

My question, then, is rather simple. Do I need to perform some sort of reset to shut the thing off, or did I overlook something while replacing the pads and sensors? The rotors appear to be in excellent condition.

check the connection. The wire is either severed, not fully connected, or is not seated properly.

Was it the round, red warning light? Or some other light?

It's the round red light with hash marks on either side located at the bottom of the instrument cluster (along with all of the other system lights). I've driven it around a while now, but it's still lit. I went so far as to take the wheels off again and re-connect the cables. They're in correctly. I'm beginning to suspect it's a problem further up the wiring; I tested continuity on the cables I purchased and they're good.
