Hi Im David, sorry for your issues. You will need to remove the fuel pick up and level sensor from the fuel tank and clean the filter from debri and contamination...that will take care of the p1188. for the p0504, the brake switch under the dash attached to a brackey along side the brake pedal will need replaced or adjusted.
