I just replaced front brakes, rotors and calipers on my '13 Avalnache.  After doing it I bleed the brakes by pumping them until solid fluid comes out.  Now, when I started it up, the Brake Warning light goes on and stays on, along with Stabilit Trac and Traction Control OFF.  Was there a particular way to bleed them or resent ABS or computer when replacing Calipers?  Do all 4 brakes now need to be bleed?   When I was bleeding them, they pads were grabbing on the rotor tightly where I could not spin it.  It feels like the parking brake is on.  I am assuming I have the calipers engaging the brake pads.  Any suggestions?

Did you have a helper press the brake pedal as you worked the bleeder?

Check fluid level.
Check you did not damage wheel speed sensor wire.
Might have stuck caliper
