Do you have a VR6, with the pad wear sensors that have to be plugged in to a sensor on the new pads?

I've had a number of issues with the pad wear sensor connectors not fully clicking into place, or having corrosion so it still sets of the alarm. You can try unplugging one at a time, using a paperclip or similar to jump the connector, and turning on the key to see if the alarm stays off. You may find one that is not fully clicked into place, or possibly even the wiring is broken.

Make sure it is the pad warning light- the circle with the lines around it (0)

The brake fluid level light is the same as the parking brake warning light, just the "brake" warning.
