I believe its the annual service indicator (or similar), that means brake fluid or transmission fluid change with the next service (I believe)

As far as I know, its not an "emergency" service item, and is mainly precautionary. I think the light only lights up time based, Ie it doesnt check the fluid and decide it needs changing cus its bad / low etc. I think it comes on every other year or in time with an inspection 2.

Id presume you was ok to wait until the next service, but maybe worth checking with ya dealer / mechanic just in case.
