Re: F250SD Brakelights come on and off when truck is...
Sounds like your brake lgt switch needs some attn. see if the clip that holds it to brake pedal arm is locked tight and elect connector is tight replace switch it's not expensive and is sort of easy to do
do the brake lights blink if you don't lock it ?
if not could be the alarm module

You have to have your foot on the brake pedal to release the car from Park. The brake pedal switch sends a signal to release the safety lock. The shifter is adjusted to mesh with this safety lock. The switch may be broken or out of alignment and that is why the safety lock is binding. Sometimes the switch is broken or out of alignment that your brakelights will not work. Check them.
I had the same problem on my Passat Variant 2007. Randomly Park Brake won't activate and/or deactivate once button PB pressed. The cockpit computer tells "Park Brake Error" (or something similar). If this is your problem, the issue is very well known to VW Service centers. I had solved it by bringing the car to the Service: The told me that they substituted the ParkBrake Button (a differently made one, even if identical on the exterior) and Reprogramming (Updating) the car computer software.
ford has a saftey in which if your brake switch is bad, brake light fuse is bad it wont let you shift out of park basically what it tells you if you have no brakelights, also in order to shift the car the brake pedal must be depressed
the brake light switch that attaches to the brake pedal .may have to be replaced this maybe a safety switch that allows the transmition to be taken out of park .and is also hooked up to youre back brake lights
this is because there is a switch on the brake pedal that is connected to a solinoid that lock the gear selector in park .
you need to A : check the switch on the brake pedal is working this may only need to adjust the distance between the pedal stop and the pedal its self.
B: The solinoid on the gearbox should click when the switch on the brake pedal is closed or opened
if not the solinoid on the gear box could be sticking or could be faulty
