If I undertand it correctly (I'm having the same problem and thinking about getting under the dash soon), there is a brake light switch that is activated when you depress the brake pedal. The actual circuit board is on the backside of the lamp cluster, and sometimes gets oxidization or something, and then the contact between the bulb socket and the circuit is compromised. From the posts I have read it seems that even when you take care to optimize the contact, the code still shows--which then indicates it's that brake light switch under the dash.
Hope thats helpful, it may not be all that accurate--but thats my understanding.
