    The brake light is only attached to the e-brake, not the brake system. There's a switch under the pedal that controls the light via the e-brake itself, chances are it needs replaced.

The 'BRAKE' light in the dash of my 1981 Corvette turned on so I added some brake fluid to the master cylinder but the light Still is on. The emergency brake never worked while I've had it but that's not...

The light comes on to to let you know there is low pressure in the system. If the fluid was extremely low when you filled it the brake linings are extremely worn or you have leak in the system. I would check under the car for any signs of moisture around the brake lines. If your brake linings are good and no leaks can be found you will need to replace the master cylinder. Good luck

How do I replace the brake power booster on a 1981 corvette

you will have to remove the master cyl no need to dissconnect the lines and dissconnect the vacuume line and from inside the car under the dash dissconnect the brake pedal from the shaft running to the booster. and remove the 4 mounting bolts that hold the booster to the firewall and pull foward in the engine compartment.
as long as you dont dissconect the brake lines you wont need to bleed the brakes.
good luck

Battery light stays on

Many possibilities but the alternator is a good place to start, if its plug is loose, then the green relay inside the center console just to the left and slightly in front of the emergency brake will be clicking in connecting and disconnecting the battery( one loud click per time). It will need replacing or simply disconnecting works for the short budget.
