Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The brake warning is likely related to the abnormal charging voltage. A scan tool would be needed to see what fault codes have set and begin diagnosis there, but concentrate on the charging problem first.

The most likely cause would be a failing alternator and the system isn't charging. Have you tested charging voltage at the time the light is on?
