Dear Debra:

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you will need to have the car diagnosed and repaired. The red brake light comes on for two reasons, the fluid level is at the minimum level or the parking brake is engaged. Take it to a service center you trust and let them inspect it very soon, brakes are a safety issue. Hope this helps you.

check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

Good Evening, there are several automotive stores like autozone or advanced auto parts that offer the service of scanning your check engine light for free. It would be very worthwhile to have them do that and retrieve the code or codes that caused your light to come on in the first place, from there we can point you in the right direction for repairs. Hope this helps.

I would have the front brakes checked and from what you are telling me you may have a warped rotor I do not know how many miles are on the car some cars have a reset after the oil change has been done to turn off the check engine light but if it keeps coming on take it to autozone and they will put it on a tester for free and then you will know what needs to be done
