    After Long Tow, Check Brake FLuid Light On :(

    Towed my car on a flat bed trailer, moving from NJ to IN. Now that i am here, took the car off the trailer turned her on and getting red (Brake!) warning and message on DIC "Check Brake Fluid". Checked the reservoir and its near full. What should i check next, it was a long tow about 775 miles. I drove the car around the block and hit the brake numerous times and peddle feels good, and car brakes well. Pads and rotors replaced about 10 months ago.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Could be the float inside the reservoir that actuates the switch is stuck. Try tapping gently with a rubber mallet on the fender side of the reservoir.

    Are you sure it was a brake fluid light and not the brake warning ? Just had to ask.

    Issue fixed itself, thank you all for your great responses.
    Anyone know the right GM part number for the front motor mount?

    Eric, thank you for your prompt response. Did you have to replace it on your vehicle yet?

    Does this seem right for a 2003 STS?
