Have you checked the brake light switch?

Good place to start (a little late now), especially if you have cruise control. Could be a melted connector or a bad wire. Look up on top of the pedal arm under the dash and look for wires going into a pressure switch.

My Toyota had both bulbs burn out at once, but I guess that's not your gremlin.

Maybe the problem lies in it.

Check for a bad or loose ground wire.
