Brake Fluid Problem

Hi All,

3 months ago i topped up my brake fluid and yesterday noticed that the handbrake light comes on when going around an island. So checked brake fluid again and it needed topping up.

I am assuming there has to be a leak somewhere as i have never had to top brake fluid up before.

I am not noticing any leaks either on the floor

It is a honda civic cdti 1.7 2005

help would be great with this.

Have you checked your calipers for signs of brake fluid? It'll normally be easy to spot as it's hard to get rid of. Do you have drums or discs on the back? I'm guessing discs but I thought I'd ask.
