Possible sticking thermostat (probable) but you could have a fan thermostat going bad also if it has an electric fan, next time it starts over heating look under hood and see if the fan on the radiator is spinning, if not it or the thermostat for it could be bad

heater core could be plugged, only way to check is to pull the heater hoses off and try to run water through it, if no water or little water then its plugged.. you would need to replace.

Check fuses. Didn't fully understand the Question so if your saying that the brake light comes on but the reverse light does not. If it is in the same spot then it would be a 2 part bulb and one filament has burned out so the bulb still needs replaced. If it not the bulb then check fuses. One of those will most likely be your problem. good luck.

The fuel pump is located behind the rear seat on the passenger side. Remove the upholstery cover to expose the metal oval cover which will expose the fuel pump. D/C the neg terminal and the electrical connector. Remove the nuts to release the fuel pump from the tank. Only now you can release the fuel hoses. Reverse the procedure to reinstall the new fuel pump.

A bad CV shaft can cause the vibration while accelerating and a warped brake rotor can cause shaking or vibration while braking.

is this car an automatic transmission? if it is then you will need to check the gear selector switch on the transmission. I have seen one that would not properly engage for the park/neutral and reverse switches to function but the car was still drivable.
