Talking ABS failure

Help...I need some advice. Last night I noticed that my ABS light was on, (even after rolling forward several feet) and also the general light stayed on.
Anyone experience this kind of problem?

Thanks

Also I know the servo's are kicking in on the front, ( cause I can hear them ) I don't hear them on the rear.

Re: ABS failure

You probably need to add a 'little' Dot4 to the FRONT chamber of the REAR reservoir, located behind the right pannier and under the right upper frame rail. The fluid level goes down as the brakes wear.

Talking Re: ABS failure / New Problem Help !!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the info...found out it was a low battery charge and the servo's could'nt pick up or the computor wouldn't run the tests it needed.
Now I've created a fuc&%ng problem with the front brake resivor by stripping a scew out...yes I am pissed.
Anybody ever face such a problem and how did you fix it. I'm supposed to be on a trip with my older brothers tommow and don't want to miss out!!!
Plaes help!
