A common problem with a car battery is low voltage. As a battery losses it's ability to store electricity it will result in a insufficient flow of electrical energy to the components in the car so my advice is that you need a new battery change it or have a shop test it to see if it will take charge if not you'll need a new battery.

The battery light and the brake light come on. This just started yesterday. We replaced the battery and front brakes two weeks ago. Is this just a glitch in the computer?

When you replaced the battery, did you have the alternator tested? The battery light indicates either the battery is not holding a charge or not receiving the proper power from the alternator to charge the battery.
The brake lights could be a glitch but it could also mean that you are low on brake fluid or you have air in the brake system. Suggest you at least check the fluid level in the master cylinder and bleed the brakes.

just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

The light comes on with a little symbol underneath but they checked the breaks a week ago and said everything was fine

I'd love to post a nifty solution, but we need to know which light comes on - Check Engine? ABS? BRAKE?
If you could check the OBD-II computer code, that could help point you in the right direction too.

ANyway - here's something helpful - the hydraulic brakes are almost entirely independent of the ABS system - and if the light is the "BRAKE" light - since the brakes were checked a week ago, the that points to the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System).

The bad news - mechanics need special training and tools to tackle ABS, and ABS repairs are correspondingly expensive. So you may choose to do what my buddy with a 95 Monte Carlo does - just drive around with an inoperative ABS system, and depend on the hydraulic brakes in all circumstances.
If you live in a snowy/northern climate/Canada, you may consider an operable to be a safety necessity.

I thought this was free support. Apparently I was wrong. How did I fix it? Easy, I broke down on the freeway and got towed home on a flatbed! That was easy!!
