I have a Kia Sorento 2005! The break lights are not working. They are bright and do not dim when I take my food off the break. I have replaced the fuse, the bulbs, and the switch located above the break peddle. The break lights work if the head lights are off, but the second you turn the headlights or fog lights on the break lights don't work. What is my next move?

I guess you mean the dash lights up but the engine does not crank over at all. Turn on headlamps and try it. If lamps dim, can be bad battery connections, bad solenoid or starter. If lights do not dim, bad solenoid, ignition switch or starter solenoid wiring.
When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.
Try replacing the bulbs. If that doesn't work, check the fuse and replace if necessary. If that doesn't work find the relay and replace it. If that doesn't help, then you have a break in the electrical system somewhere.
