Break light stayed on after changing break pads GMC safari van

You may just need to have the code cleared. If you have a reader that will erase or reset dtc codes thats all it will take. some codes will reset just by doing a few drive cycles but other codes need to be cleared. There are a lot of places that will read or reset the codes for free if you don;t have a reader. That would also give you a chance to see if there are other problems such as brake pad sensors that are also part of the problem.

Need to replace brakes on 2000 GMC Safari. does it have disc brakes all around or drum rakse in rear?

Disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear. Make sure that you repack the front bearing's with wheel grease before finishing the job.If the front rotors and or the rear drums have a rough brake pad surface,get them resurfaced before installing new brake pads or brake shoes in the rear. you can go online or your public library for complete instructions on how to replace the brakes on that vehicle.

How to change the front brakes

Unbolt the calipers. You'll need a large c-clamp or brake caliper piston tool (available at parts store) to push the piston back into the caliper. Spray some anti squeal compound on the back of the pads and install.

Sounds like the brake pads is still slightly making contact with the rotor. Replace pads and / or rotor.

Could be that the pads are wore out and are just scraping the rotor. Definately replace pads AND rotor.

Could be that the pads have broken their clips and are flopping around.

Could be a rock stuck in the overall brake assembly.

That's usually an issue with the alignment. Also, make sure the tires are properly inflated, balanced and the right size for the vehicle, as all of those things can cause pulling when you brake. I'd go with alignment first.
