    Can you see where the leak is coming from? Is it near the reservoir or at the wheels? Or at the ABS hydraulic unit??

The ABS hydraulic unit is under the bonnet, follow the line coming from the brake master cylinder(Generally where you put brake fluid) and you'll see that it enters a block with many other lines and this is the Hydraulic unit.
You might need as well checking at the wheels for any trace of leakage.

Brake light coming off and on


Check the fluid level. Low brake fluid level can cause the brake light to come on warning you of low fluid. It will be off when the car is level, but as you hit bumps and hit your brakes, the fluid that is in there will slosh around indicatind low fluid. Don't overfill and only use DoT 3 brake fluid. Do not substitute anything else.

I have a Buick Reveria and my break light always pop up with this dining sound, whats the problem?


Not sure if it's safe. Is it the ABS (anti-lock brake system) light?
Anyway, have it checked ASAP. One thing you could check is your brake fluid level in the brake's master cylinder. Are your brakes normal?

Leak from wheel fluid everywhere


It probably brake fluid - thats the only fluid that's near the wheel/tires. You may want to
get brake line service before traveling anywhere in your car, since a large brake fluid leak disables the hydraulic braking in your car, leaving the parking brake as the only functional braking system.

Parking brake light on and can't shut it off pedal is released


Check the brake fluid level .. It may be low causing the light but you may also have a leak in a brake line.

1999 DODGE Dakota abs & brake light are on and brake pedal goes right to the floor but the vehicle does stop at slow speed


sounds as if there might be a brake fluid leak somewhere in the system.check the master cylinder to see if the brake fluid is low or almost empty,if the fluid is up then it could be a master cylinder that has an internal leak(meaning the fluid is leaking past the internal seals but not leaking out of the cylinder).it also can be a problem with the abs hydraulic control module leaking.you should have the abs system checked for any codes in that system which may help find the problem quicker,if you don`t find any problem with the other suggestions

My ABS light has been on for a while and today I hit the brakes and they turned spongy. Then I pushed the pedal some more and the brake pedal went right to the floor. Then the emergency light came on and I...


I hope you have enough sense to stop driving it and stop added brake fluid

Lets review:

ABS Light is on--You may have an ABS System failure,do we continue to drive it, no
But you did,you said awhile
Spongy brakes--normal,I don't think so
Brakes go to floor--how many things can cause that,maybe 2
Emergency Light--now were in big trouble,no brake fluid
Added Brake Fluid---no fluids are consumed on a motor vehicle
any fluid loss is from a leak and requires repair
You never top off any fluid,don't need to

You have an older vehicle with rusted out brake lines
You need to buy brake tubing,cut,bend,flair and fabricate new ones
No vehicle in history, ever had brake lines made for replacement
