[s-cars] Brake light staying on after start up

The brake light can also be actuated by a sensor in the master cylinder,
which often gets sluggish.  To test it, when the brake light is on
temporarily disconnect the wires at the bottom of sensor in the master
cylinder, if the light goes out then the problem is with the master cylinder
or more likely just the sensor.  Like with the bomb, the light also tends to
stay on for a few seconds after startup if it's not up to snuff.

As Fred points out, it's not a problem to be ignored, flushing the hydraulic
fluid regularly should be on everyone's maintenance schedule.
