if the booster is bad the pedal would be hard sounds like the e-brake is stuck take off the drums and make sure the arms are all the way back then did you adjust the rear brakes after changing the shoes

The brake fluid level sensor in the master cylinder is stuck in the lower position which completes the circuit to illuminate the light.. Try tapping lightly on the side of the reservoir to loosen it. If that does not help, you will need to replace the level sensor.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

First, inspect all lines and fittings for seepage. If fluid is getting out anywhere, air is entering system as well. Fill the master cylinder and bleed it first. Make sure that when bleeding someone is holding pedal down until after you have closed each bleeder screw.(applies to all bleeders). Bleed the right rear, then l/r, r/f then l/f. While doing this keep checking master to make sure it does not run dry at any point. Make sure that at each wheel there is no more air coming out before you continue on to next one. Sometimes if there is an excessive amount of air, it's good to go around to each wheel twice.(use a small box wrench on bleeders if possible so you can actually see what's coming out.(Another way of doing this is to use a small section of plastic tubing like fish tank air hose, and attach it to end of bleeder (sometimes if hose is too small, it can be warmed in hot water so it expands over nipple.) put the free end in a glass jar with some fluid in it, keeping the hose in the fluid to prevent air from entering, using this method abslolutely prevents air from getting into system while bleeding)
Other causes of low pedal are worn rotors or drums and improperly adjusted rear brakes. If you have ABS, all of this applies but there may be a problem with abs system (usually will turn on abs warning light)
