top it up and check your lines for leaks

I thought it was brake pressure.

My own was recently illuminating. I didn’t notice any lack of fluid (obvious leaks) and the pedal feel didn’t change.

I started to suspect it was a dodgy instrument, however I eventually noticed a weep between the master cylinder and the vacuum booster.

One master cylinder later, the light problem has gone away, though now I have a stinking flat spot during acceleration...Not sure how they are connected, yet.

Regards,
Lyle
