Doesn't the reservoir have two metal straps that you snap down and the cap pops off to check the fluid? It should be right above the booster.

I have had the same problem. Your brake pedal is too low. There is a plunger in the master cylinder that is traveling too far and activating the dash "BRAKES" light. You need to bleed your brakes and if you still have the problem, check to see if your brakes are properly adjusted. If the shoes are spaced too far from the drum, this would also give you a low pedal.
