A brake light switch is a mechanical electric switch that is set in the off position (open circute) and located in front of the brake pedal. When you step on the pedal and its position changes the switch complete's its circute sending power to the brake light. The brake light switch is protected by a fuse or circute breaker and has no other connection with the operation of the brakes.
1999 Toyota Camry brakes light comes on on its own and goes off when you brake or turn Brakes and hand brakes engage well no problems?
There should be a bracket mounted on the steering column near the floor. This will have a switch in it that is a plunger type. When the shaft of the brake pedal is depressed, it comes into contact with this plunger and activates the brake light circuit. If you "ride the brakes", your brake lights will always be on because of the minimal pressure required to activate this circuit.

Check the brake fluid level, it may be low. Check brake pads for wear. Light is designed to come on when the brakes are worn. the brake light flashes when there is a problem with the ABS. that flashing is a code...get a cheap code reader from wal mart that has a switch on it for ECU and ABS codes...the book that comes with it will help you diagnose your problem
