Brake Light on Dash....

So after a week of driving in normal everyday FL weather (daily rain), driving home after work my brake light on the dash lights up and beeped at me. My brakes still work fine and all the tail/brake lights are still functioning. Ive done an inspection of the front and found nothing to be concerned with. I may end up changing pads, rotors and shoes just because I haven't since I bought the jeep and I would like to know when they were done last. Any ideas about the light tho? Any help is appreciated.

Dumb question but have you checked the brake fluid. Some cars will trigger the brake light if the fluid is low

Check the emergency brake switch to see if it is sticking... That light also comes on when the emergency brake is applied. A switch malfunction will cause a faulty indication
2000 4.0l Sport, Auto, some mods done - planning more

Sorry I guess I shoulda said that.... I did check the fluid and its all full, and the switch for the Ebrake may have stuck but its been almost a month since Ive used it since it doesn't work that well. Come to think about it I wonder if the switch got wet in the rain and something went wrong. I will check that now since Ive got it in the garage. Cheech the only dumb question is one that goes unasked... cliche I know but its true.
