When the battery light comes on (When the car is running) it is usually the reverse polarity diode in the alternator. Usually you will have to have the alternator rebuilt, or replaced. As far as the brake light, check the fluid first. As brakes wear the caliper pistons move inward and the fluid is displaced. Overtime this leads to fluid getting lower and activating the brake light. Also check that the hand/emergency brake is not partially engaged. That will also activate the brake light.
Sounds like the starter itself has gone bad. If you can access it easily you can try to jump across the solenoid. Use a jumper wire from the hot lead to the exciter lead. If your not comfortable doing that DONT. Im pretty certain your starter is bad.
well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)
