Answer

Hi,

Can't help you on your running problem and don't go giving me a lousy rating on knowledge. Drivability is not my field.

Your brake light is on and your pedal goes to the floor because it sounds like you have a leak somewhere in the brake system. Since 1964, manufacturers use a dual braking master cylinder. The pedal may go to the floor but will stop in an emergency. Cars built before that year, you had absolutely no brakes.

I would not recommend driving this way and would consider towing to a local service center (not the dealer-you will just get ripped off). This is a serious problem. I can't tell you what is leaking because I am not at the vehicle, but it should be pretty obvious.
