95 Formula - Brake lights not working

Today I found out my brake lights aren't working. Fuse is fine, turn signals work, tail lights work with headlights, and 4 way flashers work. Any ideas?
The electrics in the car are slowly all going bad, first it was a flip up headlight, then the A/C, then the power windows, then the other flip up headlight, then the A/C, now the ABS INOP light is on, it also says Low Oil (even though it is fine), now the A/C is broken again, and then these brake lights.
Thanks

I looked around the pedal area, but did not see a switch.
Thanks

It should be down there. You may need to remove a hush panel under the dash to see it.

Sounds like the brake light switch. Should be under the dash just above the brake pedal with a couple of wires coming from it (I haven't looked at mine and I'm at work...) - if you have cruise control you might have multiple switches. It could be jammed or broken internally.

Thank for all the replies. Yesterday I yanked the hush panel out, and took a look under there. Sure enough there were 2 wire connectors not hooked up to anything. One was a simple plug into one of the brake light switches on the brake pedal. This fixed my brake light problem, my cruise control problem, and my ABS issue. I actually prefer the pedal area without the hush panel, much more foot room now.
Now I do have 2 switches on the pedal, the one more towards the ground has a place for two things to plug into it. One I plugged in as descibed above, but then there is an empty electrical connection still there. Anyone know how I can find out what gets plugged in there? I guess it could be just a generic GM part and it doesn't apply to my 1995 Formula 6-speed.
Also, The plug I plugged in, as descibed above, also had another plug that I can't figure out what it goes to. Maybe I should take a picture and post it on a web site so people can see what I mean. It's a little white plug with 2 connections in it. I just can't figure out where it goes. I don't see anyplace within it's reach (it can't go too far, it's attached to the plug that controls the brake lights) where it could plug in. Again, maybe this wire is just run no matter what setup you have.... Like it's a connnection for automatic transmission cars only.
Thanks again for everyone's help. -Mark

Maybe the "press brake pedal to shift from park" interlock - which wouldn't be hooked up on a 6 speed? If it wasn't midnight I'd go pull the hush panel off my TA (6 speed) to go look....
Good to hear you got it all working. :)
