Typically the brake and battery lights illuminate when the charging system has an issue. Start small- check your connections on your alternator first and foremost. It's possible that the nut securing the charging wire is loose, or that the plug is working its way free on the side of the alternator. Next, check your engine grounds- there should be at least two of them.

If that's not it, go and get your current unit tested at the parts store, they should be able to tell you if something is wrong with it.


Also, avoid parts-store brand alternators. If nothing else, look for a local shop that rebuilds starters and alternators, and have them rebuild your OE unit.
