SOURCE: brake line leaking
I had this same issue. This location you mentioned is prone to the accumulation or road grit/sand and water and leads to rust through of the two brake lines. I determined it was best to take a tubing cutter and remove the bad sections and just replace them with new brake lines. (splice in) You'll need a steel tubing flare kit, two brake lines ( i picked em up at the parts store) two 36" and and four inverted flare adapters. The parts guys will assist you well, let them know what you are doing. Should go pretty good for you if you have any contortionist blood in ya! Naw, it's just a bit tricky to flare the tube while up in there.

I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.
It is located right under the seering wheel.
Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.
