Make sure all air is out of the lines. Next check the vacuum lines from the booster. Make sure the Emergency brake is all the way off this ca cause the brake light to stay on also. The light only comes on (usually) when pressure is being lost or not maintained. If there was a abs sensor connector at that wheel check that also.
