BRAKE LIGHT HAS BEEN COMING ON & GOING OFF, TODAY CAR WANTED TO STALL WHEN BRAKE LIGHT CAME ON. WHAT COULD CAUSE THIS?

2000 Mazda 121 • 158,000 miles

The brake light on dash has been coming on & going off with no problem until today. Brake light came on, car wanted to stall, I gave it a little gas and it didnt stall, but it did it more than once. What could this be? And does it sound major?

Check to make sure the brake fluid is full. IT sounds low. That will cause the light to go on and off. As far as the stalling issue, check for vacuum leaks and the IAC solenoid.
