Brake Issue

So I am driving down the road in my '95 chevy and the abs light come on and a few second later it goes off. I come to the stop sign and press the brakes, they are still there but not as strong as they normally are. I get off the road and open the hood, resivour is full, no obvious leakes. I have my girlfriend pump the brakes while I watch for spray/leakes, nothing I can see.

Brakes have staid like that all day now, still working but just not as well as they were. Its kinda like I lost pressure. Like air in the system (nothing has been done to it) but even with pumping it does not come back up

Any Ideas of what to look for?

have your abs system checked for failure codes by a shop - is it rear abs or 4 wheel ? -

if its 4 wheel it sounds like a pump problem -
