brake service lights?

what do the brake service lights mean? ive got one that says "brake lining" but i dont have any drums.. so i thought that it must mean the pads... then ive got a light that says "brake" and its now flickering on and off when i drive.. so i thought if "brake lining" referred to the pads that "brake" must be for fluid.. but my fluid looks sure i could figure it out by looking at the pads, but it would be easier if someone could just tell me what the lights refer to! thanks.

The brake lining light comes on when either the front or rear pads are low, have ur brakes checked.

The brake light comes on when the parking brake is up, or brake fuild is low.

You need a brake job and you need to change your brake lining wires. When you turn the wheel to lock you will see a wire heading to the hub. That's the wire. Good luck
