The 2001 Villager washer fluid level sensor is inside of the washer fluid reservoir. The sensor can be access through the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir.

There may be a sensor located near the E brake lever that is stuck or the E brake needs adjustment so that the sensor reads the position of the release lever properly. If the E brake light is only half as bright as normal it indicates that you may be low on brake fluid in the reservoir or that the small plunger in the reservoir that drops as fluid level decreases is actually stuck down on the sensor inside the reservoir. Would be a good idea to get brake fluid renewed and check inside brake reservoir to ensure the small disk shaped plunger is floating at the right level with the fluid also being at the right level. If fluid is low, check brakes for excessive wear as they may need replacing.

The brake fluid reservoir is located under the hood on the passenger side toward the firewall. it should be white with a black cap that may say "brake". Unscrew this cap and look inside the reservoir for your fluid level, then check the side of the reservoir for fluid level markings. If your fluid level lines up with the mark that says "Full" - You are good to go. If not, and you are low, you will need to add DOT3 approved brake fluid until the level in the reservoir matches the full mark on the side of the reservoir. One thing you may notice on the reservoir cap (underneath) is a rubber grommet "cup" which may be in the extended position...coming out of the cap. Gently push this back into the cap and screw back on to the reservoir. Since your question indicates you may be a novice at this I want to add the brake fluid will (eventually) remove/damage your paint, so it is important to clean up any spills with soap and water as soon as possible.

Come now: we don't call them "slave" cylinders anymore, it's not polite. They are Wheel Cylinders and Clutch Cylinders.But to answer your question: any car with a hydraulic clutch uses brake fluid as clutch fluid, and one reservoir serves both systems.
