Sounds like a loose connection in the brake light switch. Try looking at the e-brake assembly. You should see a switch there that is supposed to turn the light on when the e-brake handle is pulled up. Make sure it's tight and the connections are good. Also check that the switch is adjusted to sense the position of the e-brake handle correctly. Hopefully, it will all become obvious when you look at it
