Probably wouldn't mess around with your brakes since they are the only thing that's going to stop you .. Just save yourself the trouble and take it to a quality workshop

As Roscco said it will come on when you switch the ignition on the turn off once the car is running. Do you have enough fluid in the brake master cylinder ?

Curious how the light comes on knowing you are going to be turning the car off and that you aren't just stopped at a traffic light?

Optional HAL module installed?
