SOURCE: orange circle, 3 dots on either side. on all time

This should be an indicator of the brake pads wearing out. Have your brakes inspected.

SOURCE: 2000 jetta warning light on and can't find owners manual

Is it yellow or red? Sounds like a waring light for used front brake pads.

Check your brake pads for wear. If worn replace. If not check the wires to the pads. If these wires are broken...the light will illuminate although the brake pads may be fine
Good luck with it

Brake pads worn down to the sensor. Some VW have sensors front and rear, mostly the front tho.

I have a fiat coupe and when I put my foot on the brake and stop I get this red light on the dash(it is a circle with 3 dashes around it on each side. what does this light mean?

Check the brake fluid in the master cylinder, it might be low, if it is, use dot 3 brake fluid and fill it. When the fluid gets low, it will cause a red light to come on. Have the brakes checked also, they might be worn.

Audi 200 1991 getting a warning light

The brakes. It goes off because your brake fluid has gone below the minimum level, and sets the sensor off. Before you go adding brake fluid, what it REALLY means is that your brake pads are so worn down that the brake pistons in your calipers are extended all the way in order to make contact with the rotors. Therefore, the amount of fluid in your reservoir is low. Replace your brake pads, and see if you also need your rotors shaved/replaced because you let them go so far. Personal note: On older cars, the brake fluid is supposed to be replaced every 3 years. See if it needs a flush. If you can, drain out all the old DOT 3 brake fluid and replace it with synthetic DOT 3 or the newer DOT 4.
