2000 Silverado truck with dash light on like a video camera. Is it a sensor? If so which one.
 ANSWER: Can you give a little more information. What side of the dash is this light. Looks like a video camera?

Red circle with a wavy line and I brake.
 The brake light either means your emergency brake is applied, you're low on brake fluid, or you have an ABS brake problem. As for the red circle with wavy line, I'd have to see a picture of it to tell you for sure what it is.

 You will have to describe it for someone to help.
