As I stated in my initial message, the Brake Fluid Reservoir is full and the Left Rear ABS sensor was replaced. My Scan Tool code identifies the Left Rear Sensor again. I have a solid Brake pedal. Why does the console brake light stay on?

Jack O: Very sorry if I came across in a rude manner. Just frustrated with these problems. Gone to two shops and spent over $185 for their so-called analysis. Hand Brake switch and left rear ABS sensor replacements. Told the console lights would turn off after several ignition cycles. Now told I it must be the ABS Control unit ($$$). I'll try replacing the Brake Fluid reservoir sensor. Thank You
