Brakes problem
1993 Chevy Camaro V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

During hard breaking to avoid a collision, The low traction light came on and the Brake light on the dash. After a few seconds the low traction light went off but the Brake light stayed on.

I do not notice any breaks on while I am driving and I have tried pulling the hand brake that normally turns this light on and off and that did not reset this light.

Any idea what is wrong and how to get this light to turn off?

Light means pressure loss pedal feels good? No loss of braking ability?
Brake module controls light if combo switch in ABS hydraulic module is set that will turn light on. Only way to tell is hook up to scanner
