It's best to bring your daily driver to a certified automotive technician as soon as you notice that this dashboard light is illuminated. Something else to be aware of while you're on the road are any odd sounds, such as squeaking or grinding when you press down on the brake pedal to come to a stop. This could be happening because a pad is loose or worn down.
