Try carefully shaking the brake fluid reservoir or tapping on it. It may just be a stuck brake level sensor. If you are daring remove the cap, inner screen(carefully) and try to tap on the float for the brake fluid \switch to unstick it with a small screwdriver.

SOURCE: when do i change the transmission fluid 2005 monte carlo?

Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

Low brake fluid light stays on

Check the brake fluid level. It will have a min & max line. If it is in between these lines, Push down & let up, on sensor in resevoir. It is that plastic part in side just under the cap you take off.It may take several times, should move freely up & down. If light does not go out. Need to replace brake fluid level sensor.
