Yeah, it's busted! Seriously, if you've disconnected the wires at the reservoir cap, and the light is still on, that rules out any problem with the fluid itself, or the level switch. And I disagree with SSPlenham's response, I think if the connectors were corroded, the light would stay *off*, not on. In the 900 model, the "brake" light also means "emergency brake". There's a switch beneath the e-brake lever that can also turn the light on. Is the e-brake lever down all the way? If so, the switch or its wiring may have a problem. Or, there could be a short in the harness somewhere (difficult to track down, better get a wiring diagram!).
