2006 LT crew cab, 43K miles.  Recently brake lights have been observed

minute, then go off.  .?!

Checked the ABS ground, then the towing plug for contamination or corrosion. Repair shop owner recommended changing out the OEM brake light switch which appears to have resolved the problem. No further observance of the brake lights coming on while parked.
