The low brake fluid warning light came on and when I topped off the low brake fluid reservoir tank on my 70' the light stayed stayed on. The wires all look ok. Any ideas as to why the light won't go off or what I should be looking for?
thanks, Frank

Check the float and make sure the top of the float rod is clean and not corroded were it goes through the cap

Frank if the float is sunk get a good bottle of wine and drink it--then take the float apart and use the cork from the wine--I can not wait for mine to sink again!
