its not a battery light, its alternator charge or not charging -if its on- its not charging, alternator may have a warranty , check wire connections on alternator, the charge light and brake light are tied together with a diode so i wouldnt worry about that til charge light is off, i am guessing itll go off .. autozone has warranties on alternators

I would agree with the above answer. It would appear that the alternator is not charging and will cause both the battery light and brake light to illuminate. If you would like to have it checked to be sure I will give you a free charging system check here at our facility. Just call 770-945-1399 and tell them Bob sent you and you can make an appointment to bring it in. We can do it while you wait.
