Brakes have ABS. On making a left turn using brakes to slow down, the "brakes" on dash panel lite up.

After making turn the lite goes out within 10 sec.

Brake pads are good and rear brake linings good. Pedal is
firm.

Could this be an ABS sensor on left side?
Do you

Took the vehicle today to an r independent shop for the brake lite problem.

The brake fluid reservoir is plastic and yellowed making it difficult to see brake fluid level.

When the pads and lining were installed, The reservoir
wasn't fully filled. I was told when the pads and lining worn down it needed more fluid to activate the brakes causing a fluid sensor to activate. Filling the reservoir eliminated the problem.

The odd part was that the lite activated only when making a left turn and using the brakes.
