ABS and brake light on after rear brake job

Just put new drums and shoes on my 06 Focus wagon. After the job was finished the ABS and brake idiot lights came on. Looking at the wiring diagram the only two things monitored by the brake light are the parking brake and fluid level. Fluid level is fine and the parking brake is off. I disconnected the wire from the parking brake sending unit and the light stays on, I then disconnected the wireing harness from the master cylinder cap and the light still stayed on. then jumped the two prongs on the pig tail going to the master cylinder and the light still stayed on. Most concerned about the brake light. Anyone know if more than just the fluid level and parking brake are all that activate the brake warning light? Or what other problems will cause the brake light to come on? After start up the brake light does go off only to come back on within a minute. Also tried disconnecting the battery to try and reset with no luck. Any help greatly appreciated.
