I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
if the battery is old it would be a good idea to replace it and have the car programmed to accept the new battery.
the engine light is on becasue there is an emissions impacting fault present with the car. this cannot be reset until the underlying issue is properly diagnosed and repaired. once this is complete, the light can be switched off with a scan tool. the first step in diagnosing this issue is to have the fault logs read from the car.
the parking brake light is on because the parking brake is malfunctioning. this is usually a simple failure of the parking brake unit itself or wear in the brake componets. you can try to reset it, but it most likely parts need to be replaced. to reset, turn the ignitoin on with engine off and press the button 4 times at intervals of 5 seconds, then turn the ignition off, then start the car.

the only way to avoid guessing on this car is to have proper test plans run with factory BMW equipment. This is unfortunately a cost of owning this car.
