Default Brake Accumulator?

I found out I was getting a code for the brake accumulator and I was wondering if this is a safety hazard and should I address this immediately. My brakes seem to be working fine and I am not getting that buzzing sound when I depress the brakes. Anyone familiar with this part and its function and if it needs immediate attention, Thanks.

I have a similar issue too but everything functions correctly. Can anyone chime in on this?

I've researched that the accumulator stores pressure for emergency stops or what have you but I don't know if that exactly applies to Lexus. Nonetheless, the brakes work as they should. However, I don't know if this will cause anymore brake related issues in the future, certainly something we any of us want.
