Reply to Auto Chill's Post: Yes they did. When I start the car they are not on, but after a few seconds they both come on.

Ok , It would be a good idea if you have a auto elect test your alternator. there sounds like a posible internal fault. It may be charging now but not fully. they are abit of a bugger to change if you need to as you need to move the A/C compressor down to get to it.

please dont forget to click on the accept button. if i can help further , please let me know.

thanks for using justanswer.

Reply to Auto Chill's Post: What about the brake light--needs brakes?

HI , i would have the alternator tested first . you many find they are on the same power system so once the battery light is sorted , the brake on may go out. It would be very odd if both broblems happened at the same time. feel free to ask if you need anymore help.
