this is a front wheel drive car there fore there is no rear end like a rear wheel drive. the fluid leak at the wheels is probably brake wheel cylinder/caliper or brake flex hose. check brake fluid level if its down then check for brake fluid leak if not then you will have to check the rear area for some other fluid leak.
There might not be a leak but I think there is AIR within the hydraulics. So if you have not checked your brake hydraulics for a very long time, it is good to check the master and brake cylinders.
Finally you need to BLEED out the air so that on the first pump you get a hard pedal.
Check at the wheels for possible smear of fluid indicating small leak and air intake.
If they are drum brakes then it is most likely the wheel cylinder. these are not expensive but you will need to replace the rear brake shoes and clean all the parts with brake clean. I recomend replacing the other cylinder while your at it.
It could be coming from one of several spots. It could be a damaged brake line, a loose brake bleeder valve (unlikely), or it could be that your brake pad is either badly worn or has broken free of the caliper (you would most likely hear grinding). and is allowing fluid to leak paced the caliper piston. The first one is most likely the cause if the have no other symptoms. Hope this helps.
if you can see a good amount of wet brake fluid between the brake master cylinder and the brake booster. and you have been adding fliud often,you could have a bad master cylinder. it has to be replaced not rebuilt. you however may have a far more common problem, a rusted through brake line.have someone pump the brake pedal, than look under the car for a brake fluid leak ,repair as needed. than bleed the brakes for a good hard brake pedal
good luck chris
it is a warning that the computer has detected an error in the anti-lock braking system. it could be caused a number of different reasons, you could be low on brake fluid, or you could need new front or rear brake pads or need adjusted, there could be a loss of pressure in the system and the lines may need bled
