The brake and ABS lights could be on because of a brake or ABS problem. The ABS system uses the hydraulic brake system in addition to the ABS components. The high idle could be a vac leak or a problem with the idle air control valve. You could check the computer for trouble codes even if the warning light does not stay on.
Your brake light switch is most likely bad. Under the dash there is a switch that when you push the brake pedal, a pin extends to complete the circuit. There should be a bracket with a rubber tab on it attached to the pedal lever itself. If the rubber tab is missing, it will also allow your brake lights to stay on.
Had the same prob - turned out the brake light switch under the brake pedal had become loose. I just tightened it back in place and all was well. Only hard part was getting my body under the brake pedal to get it adjusted.
