For some reason some companies tie these two warning lights together. It could be a problem with the charging system, or the brakes could be low on fluid.

My 1987 Subaru DL turns over but won't start my tail lights were staying on even with the car off but now I have no lights what so ever


Brenda battery may be completely dead from brake lights staying on. Fully charge battery and try to start. If no start, have a good Technician diagnose why engine will not start and have the brake light switch checked, sounds like it may be faulty.

Why does the ignition light on my 2001 jeep Cherokee 3.7 auto stay on


Which ignition light? There are a number of warning lights on the instrument panel.
It could be the charge indicator, which could mean a bad alternator. Does the battery run down? Check voltage on the battery. If more than 13.8 volts while the engine is running, alternator is OK. Less than that, overhaul the alternator.
It could be the MIL (maintenance Indicator lamp / engine check light) which means the car is due for a service. The light can be turned off by a mechanic, or you could get a DTC reader on ebay and turn it off yourself if you're happy the service is up to date.
It could be the brake indicator light, which could mean either the handbrake is not fully released, or the brake fluid level is low, or the brake pads are worn down. Just some possibilities, give more information.

Usually the battery warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. On some models the battery and brake lights are wired together.
Check your owners manual for details.

Battery and brake light on


For some reason the brake warning light and battery light are connected, so either system could be having problems.
The battery warning light could mean the battery is not being charged, and the brake warning light could mean you are low on brake fluid.
I would start with the check engine light and see what the codes are.

Brake light, oil temperature light and battery light are on


Wow, 3 problems, did the lights come on one at a time or all at once? How long has each been on? 1st thing is to check fluid levels-brake, & oil. You may damage the vehicle if you continue to drive it. The brake light means a malfunction in the system, or low brake fluid. If the level is low, adding should turn the light off. You then need to check to see where the system is leaking. Oil temp light, or is it just oil light? This will go on when you basically have no oil in the engine, or the oil pump has failed, both very bad. Battery light indicates the vehicle is not charging the battery. Check the drive belt, did it break? This could cause a bunch of lights to go on. Let me know the answers to the above, so I can help to refine my answer.
