The brake pads wear down and the wheel piston compensates by sliding out = more. This also lowers the brake fluid level in the reservoir. There = probably is a floating level switch in the reservoir cap and when = braking, accelerating or cornering the lower fluid level causes the = switch to close and light the warning light. Do not just top up the reservoir after checking the brake pads and fluid = leakadge first. ------------------------------------------- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96
