The "Brake" light on the dashboard comes on for about 30 - 45 seconds and then goes off. It will do this several times, mostly right after the van has been sitting and then about 1 to 2 minutes into the drive it will go thru it's on then off cycle. It is not on when I first start or just pull out. I don't notice any degradation in the braking system. Is this tied to the ABS? Could it be low fluid (van's not here for me to check)? Or can it be pads worn? If it's ABS computer I'm looking at big $$ I assume.

Hello,

This problem usually happens when the front brake pads have worn down and the brake fluid is in the brake calipers taking up the area the pads once were. Here is guide that will help you get the idea on how to do the front brakes with rotors.
