The brake warning light may not illuminate when the fluid level is too low, which could lead to a driver being unaware of a brake system issue.

General Motors notified owners of affected vehicles starting in July 2001. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
