When it is cold out and i round a turn my brake fault light comes on and beeps 3 times and brake light flashes, after a few moments it goes away. I believe the sensor in the overflow is going bad. The only way to prevent this is to have the overflow full to the cap. Any ideas.

I had this problem when I bought my W8 almost 3 years ago. It turned out to be the reservoir.

I'm pretty sure it was the reservoir itself. I tracked down my invoice and it doesn't say anything about the sensor. The part was $69 if that helps.
