Recently the red light on the temp gauge and the stop light have been staying on from start up. The lights do sometimes go out but randomly.

The strangest thing is that the car idles and runs better when the stop light is on. When the lights go off the idle hangs a bit and the idle is very slightly higher (just under the 1k line as opposed to just under the 10 when the light is on)

Any ideas as what could cause the lights and dodgy idling etc? Also sometimes my engine will rev up to 3k and fall back down on start up once every few weeks (not great when its stone cold and -3 outside)

I would bleed the system properly first and go from there.

Well.....it's bloody fixed itself. Along with the front wipers that use to park where ever they wanted, all is back in working order.
