Thats your brake pad wear sensor i believe, when it light up means you need to replace brake pads and sensor itself, rest of light is brake and DSC, should be on due to wear of brake.

Your car owners manual is available to download from the General Forum topic links. Search for "owners manual" in the phrase box. It explains all the indicators. There are two brake pad sensors that are inserted into the pads themselves front and rear. Take a peek at the pad condition from looking at your pads between your wheel spokes. Don't even have to remove the wheels. They should have at least 1/4" material left. If 1/8" or so, the sensors are scrapped down by rotor contact tripping the brake warning lamp.
