Question about 1997 Chevrolet Astro
Is there more than one brake fluid reservoir for the 96 astro van. i checked the fluid under the hood and all the levels were fine but the brake light is remaining on in the dash panel.
the only solution acording to the manual is to replace the reservoir... not much to say about that, u do have the option to patch it...be careful with the product u use to glue that patch.

WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR HOOD LOOK DOWN THE DRIVER SIDE FENDER THEN LOOK LEFT ABOUT 10 INCHS AND YOU SOULD FIND IT IT WILL BE WHITE IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMANT AREA

the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..

SOURCE: under the hood, the reservoirs.
If your vehicle is a stick shift, likely it's the master cylinder for the clutch. stick your finger in there and see if it smells and feels the same as what's in the brake master. If it appears low, check where the clutch rod goes into it in the drivers side of the firewall. If you find some fluid there its leaking. (also check line and slave cylinder that works the clutch) Could also be steering fluid but I've never seen them put that there.

Twice in two years now my Saab 9-5 has had a pin-hole in the oil cooler, which has caused oil to flow into the reservoir. A way to tell is if coolant/oil is coming out of the reservoir cap. The reservoir cap is rated for the pressure of the coolant system, which is significantly lower than the oil pressure. When there is a hole in the oil cooler, oil will be forced out at relatively high pressures, causing the reservoir to fill and then over pressurize and spill out of the cap.

was it ever low? if so then the float inside the reservoir is most likely stuck down causing it to keep the light on. if not the float switch may be bad.
