Clutch wont disengage

Just changed the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder and now the clutch won't disengage for reverse or second. I adjusted the clutch master cylinder as per the manual.

Also, the brake lights are constantly on now. Any ideas?

Is the pedal firm throughout the whole stroke?

Ok. It fixes itself apparently. I know the adjustments were spot on according to the manual, so I figured it had to do with the slave. I bled the system with a motive power bleeder and same issue. Turns out pumping the clutch 10-15 times solved the problem. Odd

Also, the brake lights was the switch on the back if the servo. It came loose. A quick tightening solved the problem
