Anti Brake Warning Light stays on! on 1992 Buick Regal

What do you think is the problem with the anti-brakes system when the warning light stays on? What should I have mechanic look at or what do I ask for when going to a mechanic? I also see a leak; I am not sure from where the leak is comming! It is a semi-black circle around the size of a quarter. I have had to add brake fluid and power steering fluid! The car has 78,000 miles and has been well maintained by one previous owner. I have had for approximately 1 and 1/2 years. Engine runs well and starts up right away! JRK

First thing to check is the brake fluid, but I suppose the most frequently damaged part of any ABS system is the wheel speed sensor, it is generally exposed under the car (usually a speed sensor at each wheel), being exposed it can be damaged by road debris or just water and dirt.

Thanks for your response...... Do you think it is worth fixing the bake sensors for a car this age? How much do you estimate it will cost to repair? When I bought the car; I purchased it with the intent that it would serve the purpose of a commuter vehicle for work; travel around the city and night classes. Again, I must say that it runs well for an older vehicle but I do not want to spend money to repair it if it is too much to spend on a 1992 vehicle [Buick Regal]! Should I purchase somehing else instead of spending the money? Do you have a recommendation of a mechanic in the Trenton, New Jersey that has a stellar reputation and fair pricing and is honest? How do you determine who you recommend? JRK
