Question about a dashboard light

Hey everyone, it's my first of what I can tell will be many (hopefully non-mechanical) posts on here.

Just had a quick question... I have a 1988 300E and I'm getting this little orange light that comes up every now and then.

It's pretty similar to the ABS light except there's no "ABS" and the outside lines are broken.

My brakes are running a bit thin as of late, and it sometimes comes on if I am braking... So I am pretty much convinced it has to do with the brakes, but can anyone give me a little bit more detail on what it EXACTLY is?

Correct - you need an owner's manual. They are reasonable and available from MBUSA or your dealer.
