Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Yes, it could be the switch behind your brake pedal.
The brake light switch (3) is mounted on the brake pedal support (1) and secured with a retainer (2)
NOTE Proper switch adjustment is achieved when no clicks are heard as the pedal is pulled upward and when the brake lights do not stay on without brake application.

SOURCE: both brakelights and rear window
The wiring for all these lights passes under the carpet on the floor of the car, on the left side - you will need to remove the carpet and inspect the entire wiring harness for damage: you have either a cut or a bad connector in it.

is this type that uses the indicator bulbs as brake light or the europeon type with seperate lights ??,check for feed to brake light switch first then hold down pedal and for current coming from other terminal.if its all working then check wiring connectors at back where they split to either side what you call pigs tails??if its the other type of wiring where the brake lights also use the indicators then their is some sort of relay but i havent a clue how to check that one out as when i have had american cars to import i have had to rewire to europeon standards .
