disconnect the battery for a minute, and reattach it, check fittings for leaks, i had the same issue, and was flying down a dirt road and locked up all four tires to stop and it came on, i did as stated above and it never came back

Check the fluid level in the brake master cylinder.
Both lights will come when it's low.

Mine did this for a while, mostly after a slide/fast "wreckless" corner. Can't remember if it ever went away or if I fixed something but I do know my brake fluid was always topped right up and dis/reconnected my battery countless times to attempt to stop it, as it'd come back every few weeks.

Happened to me and ended up having low brake fluid caused by a faulty wheel cylinder.
