I had this problem before when I press on the brakes that usually help but this time around it didnt help. can anybody give me some advice. I know that my grandfather said I might had drove in lots of water can that be the problem do I need to wait to it dry out or take it to a mechine.

    Sounds to me like you have a bad brake light switch. This is located on your brake pedal. You will see a plug with a few wires on it. Ford recalled this part years ago. Check and see when you press on the brake your brakelights (not just the third) your actual taillights come on. If they don't then it's the switch I referred to.
