Default brake light on dash stays on

I traced the fault to the sensor in the brake fluid resevoir. Is this
sensor replaceable? Do you need to change the whole resevoir? Any comments
would be appreciated.

Try topping up the reservoir with brake fluid. The light will go on when
the brake fluid is lower in the container than it should be. Or your
sensor is faulty.

Your brake pads have probably worn, requiring more fluid to compress
them. Just have your brakes check.

brakes are fine, resevoir is topped up. Question is, is the sensor
replaceable or does it need to be changed with the whole resevoir. Haynes
manual doesn't even touch the sensor in the brake resevoir.

Neither does the FSM for my '93. Sometimes a good counterman at dealer
parts can help you out. Therein lies the rub, "good counterman" being
somewhat of an oxymoron these days.
