On some cars, the brake warning light comes on when the fluid level is low or if there is a malfunction. If your light is on, check the fluid level and if it's full, take it to a repair shop to see what's wrong.

^^^ Also if the fluid level is low you may want to have the brake pads inspected since as they wear it takes more fluid in the lines to compress the caliper under braking...
