Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla
Brake warning light comes on under hard acceleration and occasionally while braking. Brakes still have stopping power. Light normally turns off in under 5 seconds, seems to stay on if i play with pedal to keep in low gear (automatic trans).
Recently adjusted rear brakes and greased front sliders.
You may want to try checking the gas filter because my car also had that problem and it was the gasoline filter that had somehow got water in it and was completly damaged. I'm not a complete expert but I'm only basing myself on what my car had that did exactly the same thing as yours.

I also have a 2002 Sequoia, mine with 100,00o miles and replaced breaks in the spring. My VCS and brake lights also were coming on, and baffled as to why. Someone told me to have my break fluid checked, I did and it was low, once they filled it and moved my car the break light went out but the VCS lights were still on, part problem solved. I ran a quick errand turned my truck off, when I returned and turned it on the lights were off. I am hoping that by putting the brake fluid in , solved my problem, so far so good. Hope this helps you as it did me.

SOURCE: abs annd brake light stays on
Your brakes would require some testing because there are a couple things that could go wrong that would give you a hard pedal. With regards to your abs light and handbrake light staying on you should get your codes read to give you more info. But they share a common fault. One of the reasons they could both be on is because your skid control ECU is faulty. Otherwise it could be two separate issues.
