You are probably losing your coolant through a bad head gasket in the engine. If so, you should be seeing a milky exhaust. However, you also may have a pinhole leak on one of the hoses - at operating temperature, the coolant will evaporate as soon as it hits the engine, and after stopping you may detect a glycol smell under the hood. A cooling system pressure test may help identify the problem.

Sounds like you need a new turn signal switch. The lower brake lights are wired through the turn switch. When you fiddle with the turn lever with brake pedal pressed, you are making old worn contacts touch again. A new or even used turn switch should make it work right again.
