Open the hatch, there are 2 screws holding the entire light assembly on each side of the vehicle. Take the screws out and lift the assembly away from the car outwards, there is a post on the front end holding it onto the side of the car. Then just twist the brake light socket to the left and pull it out to get to the bulb.

Why does my Hyundai Santa Fe brake light comes on?

I am assuming you mean the dashboard handbrake warning light. On many modern cars, the handbrake warning light comes on when the brake fluid is low. The early indication of this is when the light comes on when going around a corner and then goes out once you straighten up. If the fluid gets really low the light will stay lit.
