    I checked everything that was suggested and everything was good. Checked tire pressure, break fluid and had the breaks checked. Could it be a sensor.

    I'm having the same problem. It's intermittent so it must not be too serious right? Brake lights are fine...maybe I need brake fluid or new brake pads?

    check your brake fluid level first , if it is low it can trip the brake light , also most shop do free brake inspections .

There is a sensor in the master cylinder reservoir, that measures the amount of brake fluid in the reservoir. As the pads wear, the fluid level drops proportionally. When the pads are near the replacement interval, the fluid level is lowest, and the sensor trips the light. Best advise: Get the front brakes checked, they may be due for replacement.

Don't use any higher octane fuel than what the manufacturer recommends, that will cause problems with cold starts and other poss issues due to the diff of the fuel burn rate. As far as the check engine light goes there are 100 different things that turn the light on, all are related to faults that have occurred in the electronic control of the engine, emission control system and in some cases the transmission, have the powertrain control module tested for trouble codes, whenever the light comes on one is stored.
