Re: Brake Fluid Sensor
I believe it is a float in the master cylinder. If it's on, check your barke fluid level. Add if needed.
The reason for low fluid is that the front disc brakes are wearing down causing the brake caliper to move out which lowers the fluid level in the reservoir. So, also check your front brakes for wear.

It may be that the brake system is contaminated with moisture, rust, or both. Bleed out or purge out all old brake fluid as a precaution, use a hand pump vacuum unit if possible to purge old fluid if not available thoroughly bleed out the system. The other possibility is that one of the reluctor sensors located behind the rotor's splash guard may loaded with dirt or just be faultly, purchase an ABS reluctor pick up sensor for the wheel that you think might be the culprit and change it out.
I believe those transmissions are computer controlled. There should be a light that comes on when you need to put more fluid in. Only way to actually KNOW how much is in there is to change the tranny filter/pan gasket and see how much drains out
There is not a dipstick for the automatic transmission on the 1999 Honda Passport. There are two plugs on the bottom of the transmission - the lowest one is the drain plug and the one located higher is the overfill plug. You should have a fluid temperature gauge as it is recommended that the temperature be between 90* F and 135* F when checking fluid level. (I believe you can order from dealer - I have also heard that running the engine for 10-15 min will put you near the proper temperature - to be certain, the temperature gauge is the right way to do it.) Run engine for a few minutes to reach optimum temperature. The vehicle must be on level ground and at idle to properly check fluid level. With proper temperature reached - and engine running at idle - set parking brake - remove the fill plug and add fluid with a syringe or small pump until it just starts to run out of the opening. Do not open the overfill screw with the engine stopped. Replace the fill plug and shift through gears - then remove and repeat one time to achieve proper level.
