I had the same problem before. To save you time, I suggest, after checking the fuse, go check for the brake switch straight away. That would be the problem most probably. It would be unlikely that the wiring would be causing the problem. :D

Yep check Stop Lamp / Cruise Control fuse first. If that is okay then check brake light swith on the brake pedal. These have a history of failing. If that is knackered then you can easily get one from Repco and such.

It will be the switch. you can by aftermarket ones from Bursons of repco they are about 1/4 of the price of the gen ones and last just the same. my advice is buy a spare and put it in the glovebox. get used to changing them because they always play up.

The brake Switch which we are referring to is located on the upper end of the brake pedal itself!
Get down under the dash n look up the brake pedal and you will see a small rectangular bit of metal with a spring n clip on it.. It has a few bars going to it from memory, pretty hard not to see it as you can tap it with your foot when sitting in your drivers seat if you try lol (i found this out from when mine started playing up, all i had to do was tap it and it'd last another 15min, so dodgy!)
