What is the cause when dashboard light sign come on,brakes light & charge sign?

(1990 Toyota Camry)
When you step the brake pedal, light on the dashboard always on, then drains the battery. I did change the brake light switch but same problems. Alternator and starter are good.

Is better to have a qualified shop test the alternator on the vehicle. You may have inbolted the problem when removed for the Auto Zone testing. Secondly you should never ever unbolt battery cables when is running. The ecm could be fried now. Who said to do that?
