Check the level of your brake fluid or your brake pads may be worn down and time to have them checked out.

Humm, An anonymous posting of this question on April Fools Day? Were it not for the fact that this is a dangerous situation, I would not have considered answering.
The answer to your question can be found on page 229 of the owners manual, and it reproduced here for your convenience:
8. Brake Warning Light
This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system reservoir.
If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid level is at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible brake hydraulic system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has been detected by the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) / Electronic Stability Program (ESP) system.
In this case, the light will remain on until the condition has been corrected. If the problem is related to the brake booster, the ABS pump will run when applying the brake and a brake pedal pulsation may be felt during each stop.
The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure to a portion of the hydraulic system. A leak in either half of the dual brake system is indicated by the Brake Warning Light which will turn on when the brake fluid level in the master cylinder has dropped below a specified level.
The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.
NOTE: The light may flash momentarily during sharp cornering maneuvers which change fluid level conditions. The vehicle should have service performed, and the brake fluid level checked.
If brake failure is indicated, immediate repair is necessary
To put it in other terms, if that light is staying on it is telling you there is a problem with the brake system. You should bring the vehicle to a mechanic for diagnosis and repair.

SOURCE: Airbag dash light
Transport Canada Vehicle Recalls & Defects Database Transport Canada Recall # 2007169 Recall Date: 2007/05/30 Notification Type: Recalls Audit System: Airbag Manufacturer Recall Number: G09 Units Affected: 51,000 Category: Minivan Recall Details: On certain vehicles the left or right front supplemental airbag sensors may crack under certain conditions, which can allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the airbag warning lamp to illuminate. A malfunction of one or both of the supplemental sensors will not adversely affect safety or cause a failure to comply with government standards. The single-point sensor in these vehicles, which is located in the airbag control module, is operational even if both supplemental sensors are inoperative. DaimlerChrysler has decided to launch a Customer Satisfaction Notification to advise customers that these front airbag sensors will be replaced with redesigned sensors to reduce the potential for damage. This action is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

sounds like an electrical nightmare! start by removing the cluster,now try signals are they working if yes then bad cluster, also i had a few caravans that just had bad connections i removed the plugs and reconnected them and it worked fine, also with the light coming on with your foot on the brake may be a bad or in correctly installed bulb, check all brakeand signal bulbs, try all of this , good luck,hope this is helpful.

Something is wrong with the ABS system. After the ABS system runs through it's self check when you get moving, it find a fault in the system. Do you have a code??? Go to any good auto parts store that will come out a check the codes for FREE. Call them first.
