I forgot to mention one more possible cause for the brake light to come
- a dying bomb. BTW, this light is the SAME as for the parking brake.

Start the car, let it idle for a minute. Shut the car off.
Repeatedly depress brake pedal until the assist is gone and the pedal
hard as a rock.
Less than 30 pumps? The bomb is kaput.
