Red brake light can mean 2 things, parking brake is on or your low on Brake fluid in the reservoir. Check the brake reservoir to see if it's filled to the max line. If not, add the correct brake fluid for your vehicle. If it is low, I suspect you have a leak somewhere. Check your brake lines and hoses.
