Bump. Experienced a similar -- yet slightly different -- problem today.
Description of the problem: the red display screen beeps three or four times and displays the word "STOP", flashing in big capital letters. Then it changes to "Brake Fault", then it says "Service Manual". The red "Brake" light flashes at the same time.
So far, seems the same -- the difference is that nothing else comes on. No hazard light (little triangle with a ! inside), no "ABS" light. The car has about 15k on the pads/rotors and went through a major inspection in the Summer.
Thanks for any help!
