Hello. Sounds like you have multiple problems. Check fuses first of course, then check the brake light switch, are brake lights coming on when you press the pedal? Get the problem codes from the ABS system - it's possible there is a wheel speed sensor failure that could cause ABS/brake light warning and speedometer failure.

The temperature gauge malfunction is likely a failing sensor on the engine (this is usually a separate temp sensor from the one going to the engine computer). Most auto parts stores will read the codes for you for free. I would recommend having a Check Engine Light is On Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose these problems, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost for repairs.
