is it lemon or not?

My brake light is on all the time and went to the dealer for repair 3 times and going to the 4th time next wednesday for the same problem. Everytime they fix it about 2 days after the light will on again. So this is going to be the 4th trip to dealer in a month, and last time they told me they don't even have a clue of whats going on. The brake is still working but I don't feel safe driving my car with the brake light on. My car has 33000 miles on it, is it too late to file a lemon??
I live in CA and do you think I can file a lemon for my car after the 4th try??

yu can but it will take you months and months to get even acknowledged. There is a guy on another board doing this, and it has been awhile. I think they will rewire your whole breaklight system before they lemon your car. I would contact ford at their 1800 number and explain to them that you have been in 4 times now and that you feel completely unsafe and want them to fix it for good and see what they are willing to do to help you out. For it to be a lemon you need something major, not just break lights. IMO thar could be major...and cause an accident..
