Your master cylinder resevoir has a sensor in it to keep check on the level of fluid in it, you may be low on fluid. Also the light will come on with the emergency / parking brake, there is a switch on the on the e brake that sets it. Some times whe the e brake starts wearing out they get loose and will activate this switch. If your fluid is fine and e brake is ok, I would at the sensor at the master cylinder, They do go bad.

Interior brake light on in 2004 Kia Spectra but no brake issues. Goes out after car runs for about 5 minutes.

Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir under the hood. It is likely low. If it is low it would be a good time to check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a leek or brakes that are just about worn out.

2004 Lexus SC 430 brake & ABS light comes on without braking

Well ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System. The reason that kicks on is so your brakes don't lock up on you on certain terrain so that's not bad. But you said your brake lights are bad, check the wiring to them for any bare wiring to make sure none of the metal is hanging out of the insulation rubber.
