An ATF leak may require a degreasing to see where it is coming from. Maybe pan gskt reseal or loose cooler hose clamps?
Is the gas pedal physically sticking while being pushed down or is it a hesitation? Inspect the throttle body and kickdown linkage motion for binding with a helper pushing the gas pedal. You probably don't need it running for this.
Low brake fluid in the m/cyl may cause a red BRAKE warning lamp to turn on.
The p/brake cable sticking may also keep the light on if the p/brake pedal has dropped down. This may also be a part of state inspection. If you release and pull the p/brake pedal up, does the light go out?

My '96 3.0L with a 3-speed auto trans had the o-ring on the front pump leaking. Upon the advice of John Wood, I pulled it, cleaned it thoroughly, and applied a bead of high-temp gasket sealer around the pump mounting. Problem solved.
