what does the "Brake" light mean (instrument cluster)

I'm referring the red light in the instrument cluster, which is the bottom/right most light (under ATTS light). Mine turns on/off at random. Does it have anything to do with the parking brake switch?

It could b you have low brake fluid, I had the same problem and it was freaking me out. When I checked the level it was low so it topped it off with some dot 3 and the light went out. Here it wat pissed me off, my brake master cylinder was leaking down the booster and I had to replace the master cylinder, that was a fun job yea not so much lol. Go with a oem cylinder or find one used, don't get that pep boys or autozone special, they all suck. Get the job done once and get it done right, good luck hopefully u just have a low brake fluid level
