Question about 1995 Chevrolet Suburban
Recently performed brake job on my 95 sub. Replaced both pads front & shoes rear. Bled the system inc. master cyl brakes feel good but light will not turn off on the dash. Any suggestions ?
Master cylinder replacement is not the most difficult job. I wish you success!

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?
