It means replace one of your lights more than likely

it can mean various things, bulb need to b replaced, sometime the replacement bulb uses a lower voltage so the brake lamp lite comes up, sometimes its a faulty brakin wire leading to the bulb

For my old Accord, it meant the brake fluid was low. Go check it and report back.

It's just a light bulb. Don't forget to check the three of them.Two of them are double filament #7443 and the other high mounted"cyclops" is a single filament.It could be just a bad contact in one of them.
