i thought it worked like a low fuel light. once the level gets to a certain point the light comes on and stays on until you up the brake fluid level. anyway reguardless just spray some wd40 on the switch under the console thru the boot. its simple to pop off and you shouldnt damage anything unless your drunk.

I am having this same issue

The brake light lights inconsistently and even if I hold down the E-brake switch while driving it still lights randomly. (fluids topped off)

If your brake fluid reservoir is full and the parking brake switch works as expected, I'm starting to wonder if you have a failing instrument cluster? Please see my post...http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=321859
