    Trouble as in?

    Why not just fix it fully or have you got aftermarket brakes?

    You can just join the two wires together and tape them. This creates a circuit and doesn't allow the light to come on.

    It sounds to me like yours may be like that when the brembo kit was put on but the two wires have come apart now. Check for the wires by your brake calliper.

    Pull the plug out, stick a 1k ohm resistor across it then check. If it goes off, then the internal resistance of the pads is out of range therefore causing the light to come on.
