What conditions do trigger a yellow or a red brake warning?

I wonder if anyone knows:
OPTION A. BRAKE yellow; car on the lift when starting (this is what I have)
a. Change fluid soon triggers at:
  • XX days before due date
  • X,XXX miles before change
b. Change pads soon triggers at:
  • XX,XXX miles on the odometer
  • Less than X,XXX miles on the maintenance computer
  • When the sensor triggers
  • Other?
c. Inspect something else in the brake system
OPTION B. BRAKE yellow plus, plus... (make your own, I have nothing to show)
OPTION C. BRAKE red (make your own, I have nothing to show)
a. Pad sensor tripped
b. Fluid low
c. Other issue
