The brake fluid is low.  
Have your vehicle repaired immediately.  
It is dangerous to drive with low brake fluid. If there  
is no resistance from the brake pedal, stop  
immediately in a safe place. If necessary downshift  
the gears.  
There is a malfunction in the brake system.  
What to do when the indicator comes on while driving  
Depress the brake pedal lightly to check pedal pressure.  
If normal, check the brake fluid level the next time you stop.  
If abnormal, take immediate action. If necessary, downshift the  
transmission to slow the vehicle using engine braking.  
Reason for the indicator to blink  
There is a problem with the electric parking brake system.  
What to do when the indicator blinks  
Avoid using the parking brake and have your vehicle checked by a dealer  
immediately.  
If the brake system indicator (red) and ABS indicator  
come on simultaneously, the electronic brake  
distribution system is not working. This can result in  
vehicle instability under sudden braking.  
Have your vehicle inspected by a dealer immediately.  
If the brake system indicator (red) blinks at the same  
time when the brake system indicator (amber) comes  
on, the parking brake may not work.  
Avoid using the parking brake and have your vehicle  
checked by a dealer immediately.
