First make sure you have good brake pads and shoes. Next, try bleeding out the brake lines with new fluid. This would help rule out contaminated fluid. You could try checking the vacuum assist near the master cylinder next. That is a start.

Is that the one directly under the word "Brake"? Yes... it is the brake warning lamp, calling attention to a detected problem with the brakes. First thing to check is the brake fluid levels. Second is that the emergency brake pedal is fully released. Third - could be excessive brake pedal travel - having to push it too far. This might be the brakes are in need of repair / replace. Anything else, have the brake system inspected. See "Related Questions" below for more
