It sounds like a bad relay, underneath your dash on the drivers side there is a set of relay switchs. One is relay 173 (running light/brake light relay). My car never came with one which is werid because its required, idk it was missing and my break light would come on and flash and beep. Once i replace the relay it stopped and worked fine after that. idk if you experience the same problem.

Open the trunk, push back the carpet in the area of the tail light. You will find 2 or 3 black plastic wing nuts. Take these nuts loose and remove the whole light assy. from its bay. Once out remove the wiring harness by twisting the plug 1/4 turn to access the bulbs.

ABS Light Stays on new brakes put on

Could be dirty abs sensors attached to your brakes. I would clean them with brake parts or elecronical cleaner.
Other possibility is a faulty ABS system.
