    ok the temp sounds right to me as for the brake light you need to test the wires the black wire on the spoiler is ground you can ground this to any bare metal in the boot eg. bolt or screw then remove the plug from the tail light have someone operate the brake while you touch the red wire to each contact in the plug and you will know wich is the brake when it lights .. dont worry you wont blow anything up if you just take your time and dont let the wires make contact with one another .
