Default dash brake light on

Today I installed a new master cylinder, new front pads, did a complete line inspection and bled the brakes all around. The bench bleeding of the master cylinder seemed to be successful. As soon as I fired her up for a test drive the brake light came on. I checked the parking brake switch and the brake pedal feels solid and the truck stops on a dime. What else might cause the illumination?

Low brake fluid sensor will do it
