The only time I have ever had both of the lights come on (ABS and Parking Brake Indicator) was when I blew the rear brake line section that runs across the gas tank. Its a very common area to rust out. A couple years earlier I had a master cylinder o-ring start to go and that also did the same thing. I would check the integrity of the lines and master cylinder then look at the electrical brake sensor. Also, when was the last time the fluid was changed? Brake fluid does go bad over time by it getting heated up and moisture entering the system. There are Brake fluid moisture level testers that you can buy for around 20-30 bucks.
