The brake warning is likely trying to tell you your CHMSL (Center High Mounted Stop Light), aka the third brake light bulb, is out. Replace it and the error may go away.

Also, corrosion of the connections of the bulb sockets/holders can cause a false error message (all if the lights are illuminating).
