Default Has anyone had this problem?

Today I notice on my 90 bonneville SSE that everytime I press on my brakes the brake light and ABS light comes on then goes off (on the dash) and does not come back on unless I press on the brakes again does anyone know what may be the problem?

Check your brake fluid level. It'* low.

Then you will need to check the sensor and the plug. Something is telling the PCM that the fluid is low.

Should be on the side of the master cylinder, but I can't say for sure with our year.
