On the right track here. The master cylinder reservior feeds the traction reservior. Traction on your year uses applied braking. That means it needs a supply of brake fluid under pressure ready to send to the front brakes.

There'* a small reservior on the ABS PMV assembly under your airbox. Follow the large 5/8" line from the master to this reservior. It may be signalling a low condition. It'* possible the float is bad, in which case you'll need to replace the whole reservior.....which is individually replacable. No need to replace the whole EXPENSIVE PMV assembly. But check that brake fluid level first. In the master cylinder.
