Brake Fluid reads Low

Yesterday my brake fluid light went on and I assumed I needed to just refill it. So today I went and bought some brake fluid and go to fill it up and the brake fluid is full...Anyone know why this is happening?

Also, my car is now making a kinda rubbing noise when I turn, don't know what that is, maybe it has to do with the brake fluid?

Also just noticed the "brake" light is on.

Most likely a bad brake fluid level sensor.

Is that easily replaced? And where would I locate it on the car?

Find the electrical connector on the fluid reservoir. Pull the connector & what's left is the sensor. If you need the detailed how-to, PM me with an email addy.
