You may have a defective switch, to check remove any panel found under the dash that blocks access to the brake pedal arm, then look up above the pedal, you will see the brake light switch, with a 12 volt test light probe (about $4 at most parts stores) check the connector to the switch, it should have 12 volts at one side of the connector and 12 volts at both sides when the brake pedal is pressed. Replace switch or repair connector as needed.
