I don't mean the dash brake light.. I mean the brake lights on the bumper. Just wanted to clarify.

if the car has been to mech.shop lately, some 'jiggling' may have occurred - lotta crooks out there. [new switch requires proper adjustment or problem will persist - spend time getting adjustment correct]

The switch is under the brake pedal, it needs to be replaced, happened to me a couple years ago.

Yes That's the problem. Easy fix. Before you go out and buy a new one, I would check to see if the current one is secure. If not, tighten it and go on your way. If that doesn't work then replacement is warranted.

Replace the brake light switch first thing when brake lights do not stay off. Check fuses first and then bulbs if they do not come on. If OK replace switch. Switch is a cheap easy fix and not worth the hassle of guessing.
