Does it stay on all of the time or go off after a few seconds?

the equilibrium is messed up, you drained air out on one side or one side still has some air in it. re bleed them , it should clear out.

also check switch on emergency brake pedal, you may have bumped it during bleeding process.

If the light comes on without stepping on the brake pedal, it has nothing to do with the hydraulic system - you have another problem, most likely the parking brake warning switch. The switch inside the combination valve only grounds when there is a difference between front and rear system brake fluid pressure, and that only happens when you step on the brakes.
