Power Steering and Traction Control Light

I have my car parked for the winter and am doing some maintenance/Repairs. I had the battery disconnected for awhile and just replaced the front brake pads and rotors. When I started it last night the power steering and Traction Control Light were on. I'm assuming the power steering light is from the battery being out but am unsure if the power steering light is on for the same reason or if it's because of something I did when changing the brakes. Any thoughts?

Did you drive it? If you disconnected the battery both those lights will always come on. That's normal. Drive it and in 30 seconds or so and they should turn off on their own.

Turn all the way one direction and then turn all the way the other direction, see if it goes away.

Thanks everyone! The car is still up on stands at the moment, the rotor position screw broke off so I have to drill it out <.<
