90% of the time the sequence is identical.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.
Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.
Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.
With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.
Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.
ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.
Hope this helps.

Only two things should normally activate the light:
Parking Brake engaged switch.
Low Fluid level in master cylinder.
I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.
I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.
Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .
I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.
Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?

SOURCE: abs light
This is a (4) four wheel sensor system and more than likely one of them has failed. This will cause ABS module to turn on warning lamp and make the brake pedal 'act up' under the right conditions.This 'acting up' is the ABS system getting a false signal that a wheel is not turning the same as the others when it actually is. Have it scanned for codes and a streaming data scan on a road test under the same conditions that you are experiencing the 'act up' to pinpoint the fault. Hope this helps! Please rate me.

SOURCE: ABS light would come on
This is your Hub Wheel Assembly. Just replace them, get an alignment, and you will be set to go. I have had to replace mine twice in 5 years so they seem to go out relatively quickly in the Blazer. Good luck!

Because the brakes were changed, either one of the sensors were broken when removing brakes or it has set a code. Go to your local autoparts store and have them reset the code. See if it comes back on. If it does you will need to look at the ABS sensors on each wheel and replace if damaged
