The battery light on means that your alternator is not charging. This could cause the brake light as well. Low voltage can cause alot of electrical problems. You need a volt meter to measure voltage on the battery when the engine is idling. You need 13 to 14 volts at idle depending on the loads that are on.

The temp gauge could be and electrical problem or the engine could be overheating. You need to go after the battery light issue first as this is most likely the root cause of your problems.
