Weird Brake Light Problem

To confirm it's the switch, the next time the brake light stays on, go outside and look at your headlights : the DLRs should be off, since it's the same switch that put them on and off.

What happened to me, and probably you, the bladder has come down in the center of the cap, so from the outside, the fluid level looks good, but in the center, it's pushing down enough on the float (used for low fluid level detection) to trigger the reed switch and turn on the brake lamp on the dashboard. What I did to fix it was add a little fluid until it was time to replace the disk pads.
That's when I also replace the fluid completely.
My experiences and $.02
