94 4x4 Brake (dash) light Wont go Off!

Howdy all!

I have a 94 Ranger Supercab 4x4 4.0- No Anti-lock brakes...

I got the truck about a month ago and the Brake light was on - on the dash. I pulled the rear tires and Drums - cleaned up all of the components, replaced BOTH of the rear Brake cylinders and Shoes, Bled the entire system...... ADJUSTED the crappy automatic adjusters.... and STILL the brake light is on.....

So I pull the front tires, replaced all pads and one of the rotors that was grooved pretty good - Double checked the Fluid levels..... Ans STILL the Light is on!

The brakes seem to work very well overall - but I have NO Idea where else to look... Anyone have any ideas?

That is a good point - I will get down there and check it out this weekend. I really hope that it is something simple such as that though! I suppose that as long as the brakes function fine and there are no obvious issues all is fine, but I tend to be annoyed easily by crap like that!
