Question about 1991 Audi 200
I have a Audi 200 1991 Im getting a warning light that is a circle with three lines on each side of it ( To be more specific the three lines on each side follow the shape of a circle slightly larger then the complete inner circle) does any one have any ideal what this warning light indicates. and or possible solutions to the problem.
This light has nothing to do with brake fluid level, if that gets low it will turn on the "BRAKE" light in the cluster(same one that comes on when the parking brake is on).
This light is part of the Autocheck system, and it means your brake pads have worn through the sensors; replace them immediately and you may need to have the rotors machined or replaced if they are too thin. Make sure to get pads with sensors, or that light will stay on even after the pads are replaced. You would be surprised at how many pads don't come with the built-in pad wear sensor, so make sure to ask specifically for them.

This is the brake indicator light. You should prolly replace your pads

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.
