Re: warning lights

There are two brake warning lights that can come up in the panel.  One is
for pads, the other for low fluid level or low pressure.

If you hold the "check" button and turn on the ignition, the panel will
scroll through all of the warning icons.

The pads warning, if I remember correctly, has no red, but shows the brake
icon.  The fluid and pressure warning has a red triangle and brake icon.

Which warning it it you are getting?
