Now I have to figure why the brake light is staying on..

Crawl down by the pedals and pull the kick panel off and look for the two little plungers that should be pressed against the brake pedal. I had the same problem after I changed the booster due to the rods being different lengths. I depressed the brake pedal with my hand and using a long screw driver I was able to push the plunger out. I found out one plunger controls the brake light sensor and park release and the other controls when the cruise control shuts off due to brakes being used. This could be one culprit.

I was just going to fill a swimming pool full of WD-40 and drive it in. The PO said the car was in the garage for 2 years, so now comes the fun job of finding out the faults and fixing everything.
