There are spring tabs on the inboard side(engine side) of the reservior that are part of the sensor and you have to squeeze together in order to slide the sensor out. The springs run up and down as compared to the master cylinder. Good Luck

The brake light and ABS light are on in the dash. I changed all 3 wheel speed sensors and the light won't go out. I hooked up a codes reader but it doesn't tell me why the lights stay on.


There are 4 wheel sensors for the ABS not 3 and the brake light may be the sensor telling you that the brake fluid in the reservoir is low and needs topping up

I have a red warning light that is activating on my 1999 Malibu Dash. It is on the lower right hand side & looks like a low water indicator. My fluid levels all seem fine.


If your collant level is ok, check your coolant level sensor. Its located on the coolant reservoir, usually at the bottom!! If faulty it will illuminate the low coolant indicator.

My brake light stays on in the dash


Typically, worn brake pads won't cause the warning light to come on. Some vehicles have a brake fluid sensor that can cause the light to come on. Also make sure the parking brake is completely releasing and if you have ABS, make sure everything is working there.
Uneven brake pressure will certainly cause the brake light to come on, that's when the master cylinder is working a lot harder for one circuit (front or back) than it is for the other, indicating either low brake fluid level or damaged/worn wheel cylinders.
If you can't find anything by examining the brakes, you may need to pay for a scan of the ABS computer.

SENSOR


it should not be hard to do it, specially if it is mounted on the reservor cap or on the side of master cylinder, just buy the new one and pay attetion to the clips than some times just have to be depresed by hand
