    Well the brake light is not linked to the poor running. The brake light is giving a code for something wrong with the brakes, and the Check Engine light should be on for a fault with the motor.
    Good place to start on the motor is when was the last time it had a tune up...
    As to the brakes i would do a search and try to find out what code the 6flash refers to, since that will give you a good place to start with that as well...
