Fluid is not the problem. Tank is full and system has been bled. No air. It is a sensor issue.

The light is a "brakes need service" light so check pads and fluid. A worn or grounded pad wear sensor will also trip the light.

Brakes, pads and rotors very new and were working fine until car sat for several months and the battery went dead. Now abs has a 4270 code and brake fluid light on even after bleeding again.
