Brake Light Problem.

I have 2010 Versa sedan, a week or so ago a guy told me both my brake lights were out.
I checked the little mechanism under the steering column, didn't find anything but was good or so i thought up until a hour ago.

I can have someone pump the brakes and they come on normally every pump.
Then randomly they wont for 5 or 6 pumps, then it's back to working normally for a stretch before they mess up again.

I checked the fuse and it looked good, The bulbs work fine and bright when they decide to work, the brake pedal, and sensors look good.....

Anyone got any suggestions?

If both or all 3 (high 3rd brake light) all don't work at once it sounds like either a fuse issue (Loose connection, since you said the fuse looks good and brake lights do work intermittently ) or the brake light switch which is located with the brake pedal. (Not totally sure because i never looked but that's were most cars usually are) has either been bent or moved somehow. My guess it's the switch and does make contact but not all the time. Try looking for the switch and it might need to be aligned/straitened/bent back to original spot/shape. If that doesn't fix it then i would switch out the fuse with a new one. If that doesn't fix it i would check the wiring going into the fuse box. Maybe the brake light wires to/from the fuse box are loose.
