    Check the connections for security and cleanliness...
    Also check your bulbs.

    And finally the brake pedal switch...

    Are there any warnings on the main dash panel (where the door open symbol illuminates)

    No warning would hint more at the switch... all wiring etc and bulbs would throw up a faulty bulb symbol.

    But if it 3 seconds each time - no variation, then it is more likely a module fault
    (BCM / REC)

    Just in case, I would consider keeping some cash on one side...for a replacement switch.
    there is no guarantee that this is a permanent or just a temporary fix.

    Glad to be able to help on this occasion
