2003 Toyota Tacoma. Brake light on dash comes on, stays on for awhile and then goes off. Usually begins when I hit a bump, but sometimes for no apparent reason. Whats up?

Check the emergency brake, make sure it is all the way released.

That was the VERY first thing that I did. I pulled it all the way out and then released it multiple times. No change.


Maybe check that switch for the e-brake.
