It means you're low on brake fluid

that is what that light means in every car

That or the sensor has gone bad.

That i've heard to be the gauge cluster

The sensors are physically the ground in the system. When they fail they don't make ground and the doors never show as open

it is never the other way around.

oh

brake lamp

Did you check the 3rd brake light too?

Some times the brown boxes on the back of the taillights go bad and trigger a false warning.
