I had the same thing happen in my 1998 Plymouth Neon and after talking to some other users, I have come to the conclusion that it can be considered normal in Neon cars. It seems to happen to everyone owning a Neon.

When the "Brakes" light on your dash comes on, or if you hear "metal to metal" scraping from them.

The brakes apply force to the wheel, causing friction which stops it.

You probably have a caliper the is stuck. This is most noticable as a pull to one side or the other when applying the brakes. The harder you step on the pedal, the more it pulls.

This could be for a few reasons, but if they are getting hot without you applying them, I would suggest that they are sticking and causing the pads to rub on the discs, or if they are drum brakes, the shoes on the drums. If they are only getting hot as a result of using the brakes, I would suggest checking that the brakes are balanced properly, and that the front brakes are not doing all of the work/ or that the back brakes are working at all.

Brake squealing is commonly caused by worn brake pads. The metal part of the pad makes contact with the rotor, causing the noise.

If you suspect something, get them checked. If you get vibration while applying the brakes, get them checked. If you get grinding noise from the brakes, get them checked.

Applying the brakes with your foot!

Probably by applying the brakes.

Engine stalling when applying brakes is usually indicative of a leaky brake booster. The brake booster uses and stores engine vacuum while driving to assist your braking effort (power brakes). When the booster's air diaphragm is leaking air, applying brakes causes a substantial vacuum leak in the intake manifold, causing the engine to stall.

Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts.

warped rotors(brakes)...most likely front ones

Frequently the scrapping noise indicates that the brakes need repairing.

Test brakes lightly after driving through deep water.Brakes may pull to one side or may not hold at all.Dry brakes by driving slowly in low gear and applying brakes.

It could be a leaking vacuum hose to the power brake booster or the membrane in the booster could have a hole. When the brakes are applied, the booster is opened to the engine vacuum via the hose. The vacuum leak would then increase, causing the engine to stall.

its a bad circuit card in the assembly...the whole assembly will have to be changed. you can get a new one on eBay for 40.00

The brake pads are most likely worn and the metal backer is digging into the rotor. Check the brakes before a rotor breaks and you are without brakes.

You use them by applying the brakes.

they're so heavy that it takes the brakes some time to dissipate all that moving energy.
