CHEVY BRAKE FLUID WARNING LIGHT

2003 Chevrolet Venture

Brakes problem
2003 Chevy Venture 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

On my way to work this morning my low brake fluid light came on. I drove about 30 mins and it just shut off on its own. There is nothing under my van where I park to indicate a leak of any kind and my brakes dont seem to be having a problem. Do you have any ideas on what could be causing this?

Hello
The fluid is more than likely low, as the brakes wear the calipers fill with fluid from the master cylinder. In the morning when the fluid is cold it will be at a lower level as it warms up it expands and the level rises. Check the brake pads they are most likely wearing down and may need to be changed, and more fluid should be added.
