What do they mean? Is it a battery problem?

If you mean the engine shuts off, when you come to a stop, it's likely a Torque Converter Lockup Solenoid keeping the Torque Converter Clutch engaged stalling the engine when you come to a stop

It could also be a short in the brake light circuit dropping the voltage to near zero. – R.. May 27 '13 at 23:48

The lights coming on is normal for engine off, key on. That is just the car illuminating most/all of the lights to verify the bulbs work.
