So was the fluid low? Is there still a brake fluid leak?

Best Answer

No the brake fluid level is fine and the emergency brake is all the way up

I don't see any oil leaks on the ground , is there a switch on either on the brake pedal or on the master cylinder under the hood that could be the cause of the brake lite on the dashboard

The sensor on the brake reservoir could be faulty.
