Default Warning Lights?!

I'll go ahead and admit that I am completely dumb when it comes to cars. I can check the fluids, put oil in, pump gas, and drive the car...but that's about all it amounts to. But, I'm hoping that my question can be somewhat answered...**crosses fingers**

I have an 86 Toyota Supra, automatic...and that's about all I know. It only has a little under 130,000 miles on it. I bought it three 1/2..four years ago. About two years ago, it died on me. I just got it fixed. It's running great. But some of the warning lights on the dashboard stay on. Specifically- the brake light, the low coolant light, the battery light, sometimes the engine light...and another light that I honestly don't know what it's supposed to mean. It shows a little car and has...lights beams? coming out the back of it.

I know I sound like a complete moron. I get that. But, I was hoping maybe someone could atleast tell me if this is something that could be easy to fix or hard to fix.

Thanks in advance if someone can answer!

Low Coolant Light= Check coolant level in radiator and reservoir (sensor is in the reservoir)

Brake Light= Check Brake Fluid level, ensure parking brake is not set

Check Engine Light= Check for codes as stated in the MKIII FAQ

Battery Light= Check your connections on your battery terminal, may need to get alternator tested

Brake Lamp Failure Light (Car with light beams coming out the back)= Make sure that none of the 5 brake lights are burned out, you may need to fix the grounds on them as well as this is a common issue
