If you're talking about brake pads that have an electrical connector..
the warning light comes on when the pad is so worn that it allows the electrical connector to earth via the disk .. hence the warning light.
Fitting new pads will not cause a warning light on your dashboard. No reset required.
Are you talking about the brake lights in the back, or the brake warning light on the dash ? If the warning light is on, have you checked the fluid level in the master cylinder ? Is the parking brake on ?
There is a brake pad sensor that should be replaced whenever you replace the brake pads. It’s located inside a whole in the brake caliper of the left front wheel. When this sensor fails, the warning light will come up in your dashboard.
Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
