Intermittant brake lights

Brake lights do not stay on : have to keep pumping pedal to get them to go back on.

I would agree with Sheila, I would check the switch output first, but being as I have no idea what you're working on it's really just a WAG. DO the brake lights come on every time you depress the pedal, then go out or randomly?
