Re: brake light
Check and make sure the parking brake is not partially engaged. Then check the connector on the combination valve for for corrosion, and make sure the terminals aren't shorted out.

Re: brake light
You have a leak. Leaks don't go away. line is rusted through under the doors, up on top of the frame. Very common with these cars. Get the car up in the air, find the leak, cut the line, fix it, and bleed the system. Flare the tubing properly, don't use compression fittings. Once you get pressure back and equalized, your light will go off.
