Brake Light on after abs braking

Postby molczak714 [OP] » February 29th 2012, 12:00am

hey guys i dont know exactly what is going on but the brake light came on after i was pulling out of my driveway. Well it didnt go on right away it was snow on the driveway and i stepped on the brake which had normal pressure and the abs kicked in. After that the brake light came on and i have to push the brake pedal down pretty far to brake. Like there is no pressure. What could be the problem there is fluid in one of the holds and the one where it says to clean the filter there is nothing in there. There are no leaks anywhere so im really confused. 1994 astro van awd 289,xxx miles.

You might have a leak, and your reserve is now to low, probably air in the lines now. Check for fluid around the back side of the tires, no rotted steel brake lines, old cracked bulging rubber brake lines, pull the rear brake drums to make sure you don't have a bad and leaking wheel cylinder, could also be a bad master cylinder.
