Hello, my name is Bobby. When you say it comes on and blinks off, what is actually coming on and off?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The brake light

Thank you. If the brake light itself is on then start by checking the brake fluid. If the brake fluid is low then this will occur. If it is fine then the brake fluid level sensor or the parking brake switch may be failing. I would check the fluid first and let me know what you find.

If I wiggle the wire that goes to the brake light switch it stays on when holdings the brake down

When you press on the brake pedal the brake fluid level will change. Did you check the fluid level? You are talking about the switch on the brake pedal assembly right?
