SOURCE: Emergency brake light
derive your car on 5 to 10mph than take it into nutral gear,
than let the car slow down Slowly automaticaly WITHOUT using brakes not even any brakes,when its stops you have to judge that is your car stops with some jurk or some strokes.
IF NOT THAN YOUR your car have finetunniing of brakes & if have some jurk than you have to adjust your car brake system
than check your tail lights indicating your brakes & simultaneously works with emergency also,
dont worry its not a major problem cause its happens sometimes when your car had run a long time without any service,
so test all thsiat your garage or you can at branded service center having certified mechanics,

It wouldn't be the car battery, but since you just purchased the car, the dealership should correct the problem. Bring it to their attention right away. Did you get any kind of warranty? Most dealers have at least a 30 day warranty for things like this.

Check your alternator, if you recently had it replaced - make sure that the one you got is correct, if your working on your own.. take a volt meter, set it to dc volts and measure across the battery while the car is running, generally you see around 14 volts, 12+ volts from the battery always and the alternator adds around 2 while running - the weird smell you smell if it smells like a dying rat, it would sound like you will need an alternator - as for your brakes, I'd start by checking the parking brake lever - back to your battery light, make sure all connectors are good on the alternator and also if your alternator does measure 14 volts, turn on all acessories - wipers headlights, radio, blower, rear defogger - this will generate what we call a load, if you then go to your battery you should see the battery voltage not drop below around 13.5 if it does, you probably need an alternator because it's failing to meet the demands of your car. though the lights come on together, it doesn't necessarily mean their in the same circuit - I had the exact same problem with a nissan altima of that year, that came into the shop... all its bulbs were burnt out and it kept having that happen, then other times it was just fine! give that a try, if that doesn't work send me an email at email@example.com I'd be glad to give you advice!

The rear tail light switch in the circuit. Remove the switch from its connect and bypass the the terminals on the connector with jumper wires and see what happens. If when you by pass the switch the tail and brake lights work you found the culprit.
