once the lining lamp is on it is because a sensor has been damaged. They are designed that when the brake pads get below a certain threshold they actually wear through the sensor itself. So, because of this whenever replacing brake pads that have caused the lamp to come on ou must always replace the affected sensor as well. Once you have replaced the sensor or sensors that were damaged if the light still will not go out then try leaving the key in the on position with the engine not running for roughly 2 minutes. This should reset the warning lamp.
