Battery light and emergency brake light comes and stays on,

Customer Question
Battery light and emergency...

Battery light and emergency brake light comes and stays on, sometimes goes off

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

It's my emergency brake!!

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Kia?

My e brake isn't even connected to the cable, it doesn't work

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Kia?

And my battery tested good

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just happened.. it came on when I left work, I work at a dealership but it came in when I left.. I called bumper to bumper and drive up there to test my battery and it tested good.. no reason for my e brake light to come in if it isn't even connected and doesn't work..

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of yet
