1997 Chevy Astro AWD mileage: 94,000. A front brake hose leaked all the brake fluid from the master cylinder. After repairing it, the parking brake light and anti-lock warning light remain on.I have disconnected the battery to try to reset the computer and checked the switch on the parking brake and the inline switch by the master cylinder. The brakes work fine but the lights remain on.

The ABS (antilock braking system) light will illuminate when there is a malfunction in the brake system. The fault code is then stored in the computer. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. Because the ABS light indicates something is wrong, a trip to you neighborhood automobile service center sooner rather than later is recommended.
