Brake light comes on and off?

My brake light goes on and off while I am driving? does anyone else have this problem? It is the e-brake light. The E-brake is not engaged at all and it releases, but while I am driving or parked it will go on and off? does anyone know why? is there a sensor on the pads that think the pads are low? I pulled a wheel and they look fine?

Even if you fluid is slightly low it will go off so check there...

Yep, even if you brake fluid is a tad low the light will go off.

If your blinkers start flashing your blinker fluid is low too.

Sometimes the sensor on top of the cap goes out....fill with fluid first...if it persists...most likely the sensor
