I would bet it is the brake light switch located under the drivers side dash behind the brake pedal. It is not hard to replace it is just hard to reach and position yourself. Search the forum for the instructions it is very simple and will prevent people from running into you.

had a look at it and there are two switches,one on top of another,small white switch on bottom and bigger black one on top,think i will just replace both to save under dash time to a minimun....thanks for reply,this site helped me change out my water valve...:)

the black one is the brake light switch. the one under it is for the cruise control i believe. it is real easy to change after you contort youf body under the dash
