Reaching out. Help

So reaching out for some help. I'm used to dealing with jeeps that have less electronic things involved. ok so I noticed my brake light came on and I read to check my fluid so I did. It wasn't even halfway low but obviously low enough for it to tell me. I double checked everything from every bit of my brakes and around and I found no leaks. I'd even double checked before I got home from me going to Walmart after filling it where it should be and again no leaks. Everything looked fine. Can someone reach out and help that may be able to help me figure this out, I'm baffled

you refilled the master, and how long till you see it dropping?
Lot of tubing to check, wheel cylinders, calipers, hoses and if applicable ABS.

Look at the master cyl to booster seam -any trace of a leak?
I have seen masters leak AND vacuum at booster drawing the fluid.

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.
When I see the quality of aftermarket I think OEM.

if the brakes have worn a lot the fluid will be lower. How many miles? if no leaks i would be looking at brake wear.

If the emergency brake is on, the brake light will be lit as well. Check to see if it's engaged or if the switch is faulty.

This is the person who wrote this. I can't get back in under my user name but I was able to crawl under and look and it was dripping. My boyfriend is out of town in Ohio til tomorrow but one of our friends was able to help and we took it to his brother's house and looked thinking the brake hose had a leak but that wasn't it. Last year when my ex was replacing the brakes on my jeep he dropped the washer that goes between the hose and caliper and didn't know. Somehow it had some gunk deal it up til last Saturday. So we fixed the problem and my brakes are fine now. Thank you to everyone who reached out! -Libertyitalian
