Sounds as if your getting a back feed. Most likely from the brake light bulbs (part number 1157). Take out the brake light bulbs and see if the dash lights still come on when you step on the brakes. If so check the lead contacts on bulbs, sometimes they get squished/corroded and jump both contacts, replace bulbs with new and recheck. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: BRAKE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT ON
I had this problem when I change dsmy rear brakes and accidently disconnected the electrical connector for ABS/traction control. Make sure they are all seated well..........

SOURCE: Dash Board Brake Light comes on
I had the same problem, I put in new brake fluid, changed the shoes and pads. When you brake, does your foot go all the way down to the ground?

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.
