Red Car on Lift icon

Hi everyone. So my instrument cluster is showing the red car on lift icon with a -200 miles underneath. The brake light is NOT lighting up. Car is a 2011 335xi an is now at about 62,000. Read my manual and says for the red lift icon:

Starter failed or
Ignition malfunctioning or
Lighting system failed.

I haven't had any issues and none of my lights or lamps are out. Am I missing something? Car is out of warranty and try to avoid going to dealer anytime I can now. I will bring it to my local BMW independent mechanic I just want to get some idea of what this might be first. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks for the replies in advance .

Well this is the first time this ever came up...
