1999 kia sportage battery and emergency brake come on when i start the car

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.

Emergency brake and battery light on

Not sure of your model since it may not be sold in the US.
The light means the battery is not being charged or the parking brake is on.
You should have 12 volts at the back of the alternator with the engine off and 14 volts with the engine running. Also check and make sure the parking brake is off and the brake fluid in the master cyl is full.

ABS light occasionally comes on, only when making a turn. I stop, turn off motor and restart. It's fine and may not happen again for a few days. Until I get to a mechanic, is it safe to drive?

Yes she is still safe to drive. If the light is on, the abs system is disabled and the brakes revert to standard type brakes, meaning they may lock up during hard or emergency stops.

Periodically at idle chugs. When trying to rev for more RPMs it almost stalls and takes alot of chugging before it gets back up to proper RPMs in 1st gear.

Does this happen occasionally after a stop? My 02' did this- brake light switch was sticking. I noticed it one night, after the car started chugging, I happened to look in the back window and saw the brake lights were illuminated for a few seconds even though i was totally on the acc.
This was a huge recall- lots of cars involved. Call a stealership and have them run the VIN # to see if you fall into the recall

04 Corolla "BRAKE" light on dash--comes on occasionally??

I wouldn't drive it... when your brake light comes on, it means there's a serious fault with your brakes. They may not engage when you brake and there won't be any further warning other than the brake light

Brake light, battery light, antilock brake light coming on

this issue sounds like a grounding issue, teh main clue being everything gets dimmer. sometimes an additional ground is a faster repair than finding and resolving under dash issues.

This issue will likely NOT be battery or alternator.

Love the right rear tire clue, and it should not be related..

Emergency brake light comes on occasionally but does not stay on

I would check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder, if the level is too low it will lower the float in the master cylinder and turn on the brake light on the dashboard, especially if it is an occassional occurance. Hope this helps

Emergency brake light won't go off

This light will also illuminate if you have a hydraulic concern such as low brake fluid level in the master cylinder.
