Your brake light swich is broken. This controls your brake lights, ABS light, and cruise control. It's a $4 part, that is attached to your brake pedal lever under your drivers side dash. After you remove the panel below the dash, its an easy do-it-yourself repair. This part has a plunger that goes in an out when you press your brake pedal.

Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.

Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.

unplug the light. you will find a bit of rust on the + contact. that's the cause. I think it sparks sometimes and the computer shuts down the whole lamp. use a nail file or smooth sandpaper to clean the contact and there you have it... good luck. ;)
