Hello my name is***** brake light turning on sounds like your brake fluid may be low and when you turn all of the fluid goes to side causing switch to come on so start by checking brake fluid level. The check engine light can come on for many reasons, if vehicle seems to run fine then it is likely a minor emission problem such as a loose gas cap. You can have vehicle connected to a scan tool to check diagnostic codes are your local parts store for free. Once you get the codes, write it down and let me know what it is. With the code I can give you common/possible problems, testing/repair instructions, and costs. Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

Does the light flash a specific amount of times?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Then it shuts off? Do any other lights come on during this?

Does the abs light ever go off?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
past fews no.. in the past it comes on then go off but recently it has been staying on with the ss for rough road signal
Expert:  Dan replied 10 months ago.
The brake light can come on if fluid is low, brake fluid level swich has failed, or parking brake. Since your abs light is on I'd start by checking diagnostic codes because you may have a failing abs module which is the other thing that could cause brake light to come on. Let me know what codes your getting when you get a chance to check. Thanks
