What exactly do you mean it stays on.... the light stays on ?

1. fill brake master cylinder with brake fluid it may not look like it needs it but the sensor is at the top of the resivior.
2. If abs and brake light staying on then there is probably a malfunction detected by the control unit. Codes can be retrieved using the following method. Under the hood to the rear of the left front strut tower you will see a small 2"x3" gray box that should say diagnosis on it. Open the top and you will see a pattern of two places where a connector might fit. . The connector will look lilke this [ ][ ] [ ][ ]
[ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ]
[ ][x][ ][ ][ ][ ]

Get a small jumper wire and a paper clip and ground the pin that has the 'x' in it. Now turn the ignition key to run and watch the abs warning light. It will come on for 3 seconds and then out for two seconds. It will then flash you a two digit failure code. Long flash(s) of 1.2 seconds followed by short flash(s) of .4 seconds. The long flashes are the first digit and short flashes are second digit (ie 4 long flashes followed by 2 short flashes would be a code 42. Once one code is output the light will go off for 4 seconds and then either flash you any other codes or repeat if there is only one. Try this and then post with the code you get. Would post what they all mean but there are 31 different codes and I am tired of typing already. Good luck and make sure only ground the specified pin. Can cause damage to electricals if grounding wrong one.
hope this helps
