Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille
Just replaced rear brake pads and bled the lines . All brakes work good, just the dash lights are on. What is the remedy?
Firstly make sure u didnt break a wire while changing the pad, there are sensors on the brakes, make sure they are plugged in. Else the ABS and hydraulic pump motor
electrical relays and 30 amp fuses will be replaced. In addition, the
hydraulic pump motor assembly and pressure/warning switch will be
inspected and, if required, replaced.

this would indicate the alternator is bad, I would suggest to replace it,OR I would suggest to have the charging system inspected if not charging the ignition relay will not turn off the lights . If that is ok I would inspect the ignition relay and all the fuse links. check all the fuses and the fuse links in the engine compartment, I have also seen the ignition switch cause problems like this, bad connection inside the switch for the run signal.

There is a sensor on each of the front (not sure about the rear) brake calipers that indicate via the dash light when brake pads are worn down and need replacing. The wire is probably broken on one or both of the front wheel calipers. If there is enough slack in the wire you can just splice it back together with splice connectors and seal with heat shrink insulation. My '02 Passat has had it happen twice, first on the drivers side, repaired wire and light went out, then the other side broke, repaired the same way and haven't had any problems since.
