Sounds like you either have a bad wheel cylinder and are leaking brake fluid or a bad axle seal and are leaking differntial fluid. In either case you will have to remove wheels and drums for further investigation

No. The brakes are applied manually. A brake band squeezes a brake drum.
You might be out of brake fluid. Our rear wheel cylinder was leaking and ran ours out of fluid and the light came on.
Does it lock up when you apply the brakes?? If it does then you have a leaking wheel cylinder. A small amount of brake fluid gets inside the brake drum causing the wheel to lockup. The fluid usually "burns off" after the brake heats up.
The Drum is bad and needs to be fixed asap. Seriously. I lost my brakes because of that and almost t-boned another car. Get it fixed. Forget the cost. The brake cylinder could be leaking more than likely.
They compress the brake fluid and push the brake shoes out against the brake drum stopping the vehicle.
The brake shoes are inside the drum, which is turning along with your wheel. When you press the pedal, it pushes fluid through the brake line, and that fluid forces the shoes outward and they push on the inside of the drum, which slows it down, and thus slows down your car.
Possibly coming from a leaking brake cylinder. Top up fluid and take to a brake shop ASAP.
You have a serious brake problem. For your own safety have the vehicle towed to the garage of your choice for repair.
there is too much in the container If you filled the resevior with brake fluid PRIOR to replacing any of the brake linings, it will cause the fluid to "backflow" into the resevior, thus it will overflow and leak from the cap.
Rebuild the cylinders on that caliper.
