My suggestion is take it to the dealer. It's still under warranty, A brake fault has been detected and it needs a thorough, expert inspection. A 2013 should not have brake problems, and brakes are life and death serious. I wish I could give you more, an accurate diagnosis , but I really just don't know what that 'click' could be. BUT..you say 'on start up"..does the light go off immediately after it starts?

David, thanks for your care and reply i aclled the dealer and he advised to connect a battery cable first, i did and it worked. finally, it was a battery problem thanks again

Ah that would do it. You're welcome.. I don't like for folks to have brake problems and do my best to assist. faulty brakes can get somebody killed

Ali- you have a brand new car, still under factory warranty- YOU do not need to be messin' around under the hood- if you are not in the habit of taking it to the dealer to address warranty issues, please, GET IN the habit
