It's probably not brakes, but you can check that anyway. If the check engine lights are on your computer has stored a fault code. Use a code scanner to find out what's wrong that way you can know for certain what's going on. BTW, if it's transmission or brake related, many engine code scanners won't pick up the code. You may need to take your vehicle to a specialty shop.
