Fuel Filter light

My fuel filter light and water in fuel light came on after the truck sat in the driveway over the weekend, I changed the fuel filter and both lights are still on.

Could it be the sensor maybe???

Did you drain the water off the fuel filter housing?

Yes I drained all of the fuel and tried cleaning the bowl with q tips, replaced with new filter and new fuel, the lights are still on after leeting it run.

sensors may be dirty?
did you drive it or just let it idle for a while?
might be a possible fuel restriction... FPR screen dirty, etc?
