Question about 2004 Ford Focus
What is happening is you switch is out of adjustment.Sitting in the garage you push the pedal down further so they come on.While driving you don't push it down as far or you would have wheel lock up.
Look at the top of the brake pedal and located the brake light switch. This switch just twist out then you will see a threaded stem with a lock washer on it.I will try and explain how to adjust it.
Push on it until to make the threads longer or washer closer to the switch. Then hold the brake pedal down as far as you can and reinstall the switch. Then pull up on the pedal and you will hear the switch clicking or ratching into place. This is how you adjust it.
