330i break indicator is on...

The 'break' indicator on the dash is lite. What does this mean? Could it be a faulty ABS sensor? What is the best thing to do?
Thanks.

Needs new pads?
If this has been done, then wiring replaced incorrectly.
Minor chance of a more serious problem.

Which "brake" indicator is it? Do you have an operators manual? This will explain what each indicator means. There is one for the braking system, and a special one for the brake pads wear sensor. There is even an indication on the Check Control for the brake lights.

Technically, it's the BRAKE indicator that's on.
You need to have the brakes serviced. It's most likely the front brakes because they always wear faster than the rear. Assuming your 330 has about 60k miles on it, the brakes should be replaced on the front only about now. The front brakes generally wear at a rate of 2 to 1 faster than the rear brakes.
Before you go out and have a brake shop look at this, you may be pleasantly surprised to find that this is a warranty item and the dealer will do the job for free.
