I would recommend taking the car to a mechanic for this. It could be a problem with brake wear. Since the problem seems to be with the battery lights as well, you could be having trouble with your alternator, also good to take to the mechanic.

If the check battery light is on while driving, your charging system may be faulty. Have you had any trouble getting it to start ever? The electrical system on cars is very complicated, and it sounds like you may have multiple issues. Taking it to a mechanic to have it diagnosed might cost a little bit, but you could be tracing the problem forever otherwise.
