Why would the check battery light and brake light come on and then go off when you accelerate?

Sounds like battery/alternator problems. Check battery first, it's cheaper to replace.

These two problems are not related check alternator and battery again then check wiring grounds and relays brake light is on because brake fluid is low check brakes for wear and check brake lines master cylinder and wheel cylinders for leaks

i dont know about the oil and brake ...but brake and battery light comes on you should check the alternator for proper charge

check wiring from battery to wiring harness to fuse (check fuse also) to harness to brake light. Check ground, too

Defective battery or something is pulling power from the battery. Check the glove box light, interior lights, trunk light, hood light, brake lights, etc.

ive put in brake fuild oil toped that up checked the battery level all ok still the battery light and hand brake light are still on...

Check your alternator, Mine did the exact thing. The Battery light and the !!BRAKE!! Light came on and couldn'y figure it out for the hell of me, did volt tests while running and only had 12.5 volts on the battery. I changed the alternator ($179.99) and got back to the normal 14 or so volts while running and lights shut off. no idea why the brake light was on at all.

The brake lights and the tail lights are separate circuits. Check the brake light fuse, then check the brake light bulbs, then check the brake light switch.

Those are completely separate circuits. First check the brake light bulbs to be sure they are not burned out. If they check okay, check the brake light fuse. If the fuse checks okay, check the brake light switch.

Check the brake light bulbs, Check the brake light fuse, Check the brake light switch, In that order.

check wiring, check bulbs, check fuse, check brake light switch,

For the 1994, you have to remove the negative battery cable, then depress the brake and hold it in for 5 seconds to reset the check engine light.

Check the fuses, Check the bulbs, Check the brake light switch, In that order.

break lines need to be replaced, check the battery cables to if that's not it then the battery may just need charged

first check brake light fuse second check light bulbs,they should be double element third check the brake light switch located on the brake pedal

Park brake light - might mean the e-brake pedal is slightly moved down to initiate light. Battery light - means the alternator is bad or battery bad etc. Parking brake light also comes on when the brake fluid runs low... This happened on a 2003 kia Rio the next day the car died it is either because of a bad battery, alternator or alternator fuse

Check for: -Not entirely sure, but just check that your brake master cylinder reservoir has the right level of fluid.(under bonnet, in front of steering wheel side). Possibly a strange way Kia has linked warning lights. not quite the battery light and brake light will only come on in these cars if the alternator belt broke off, the alternator is dead or if you have a wire crroded and a bad connection because the alternator light makes it come on but your brake light coming on by itsekf will not trigger your batterty light

Check the brake light switch on the brake pedal

Charge the battery, start the car and check the battery with a volt meter. Should have over 14 volts, if only say 12.4 to 13, then change the alt. or check the wiring.

2 things could be the problem. If the "Brake" light is on that usually comes on when you set the parking brake then it could be the brake fluid is low. Check that. If it is the "Brake Lamp" light then check your brake lights. 1 of them could be out.
