Look for wet areas around all brake components. Check the lines all around the car.

Are you refering to the brake fluid low indicator or the lights at taillamp?

Most common leakages would be from the master cylinder, calipers and slave cylinders (if equipped). Hoses would leak at a much faster rate.

May be low pad indication, check pads for wear.
