The red BRAKE warning light has been on. I have engaged and disengaged my parking brake and jiggled it up and down and it doesn't seem to flicker, so I don't think that's the problem. I do sometimes notice my brakes squeaking, but some things that I have read say that worn brakes wouldn't be the cause. I haven't noticed a loss in pressure when I hit the brakes. What could be the cause of the light?

Check the brake fluid level and if you find it low, check the front brake wear.

And if the fluid level is good? Probably just front brake wear?

No, that's not what I said. I said if the brake fluid is low and causing the light to come on, you need to check the front brakes to see if it is low because of transferring into the calipers due to brake wear. As the brakes were the fluid transfers from the master to the calipers.
