Bad door switch, dose your dome light go out when you close the door? brake light can be a tail light out, put 4way flashers on and see if on doesnt flash. but most common is low brake fluid in the reserve. if its not low a common problem is its sensor an easy fix the replace comes with a new cap just unplug the 2 wires on wireline and plug in the new . battery light comes on if the battery is low or if the alternater is bad . jump the car, once running disconnect the neg. battery terminal if the engine stops the alternater is bad if not get the battery tested

    just wanted to all that could b a failing ignition switch if you have a heavy keychain this will kill the switch , but you also have a bad doorswitch draing your battery, just turn off the dome till you get it fixed to save the battery.

Brake light& battery light keeps coming on now car won't start

Anytime the battery light on the dash comes on is an indicator of the alternator not charging, resulting in a dead battery. Low voltage will cause other warning lights to come on as well. Replace the alternator and fully charge the battery before running the engine, to avoid full field condition with the new alternator ( overheating).

Battery, brakes and check engine light came on but the car will still run when driving with the problem lights on the car transmission would shut down but the engine still runs if you shut the car off it...

Year make and model ?
On some cars the brake warning light and battery warning light are on the same circuit. A problem with either system will turn both lights on. The check engine light means there are trouble codes in the computer that need to be retrieved to assist in troubleshooting the problem.

Instrument panel brake light stays on what does it mean

The brake warning light is for the hydraulic system.
It could be low on fluid or several other things. There may also be a warning light for a dead brake or tail light.

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.

I have the brake and battery warning lights on at the same time what is the problem since the car is running ok

battery light indicates alternator is not charging. It may run fine until the battery is dead, but then you'll be stranded wherever it dies. Recommend taking alternator to parts store for testing. Once alternator is fixed, brake light may go out. If not, check fluid level in reservoir. If it's low, you may have a leak. Get back to me if you need help getting alternator out or brakes fixed, etc.

ABS light stayed on; now I have a dead battery.

My best bet would be a short in your cracked plug which is probably energizing your braking unit the whole time which runs your battery down. I would, if you have the knowledge and sills disassemble the plug on your truch and see if you can spot the damage. Disconnect your battery first.
