I installed a motorcycle brake switch
on a bracket. Put a spring between switch and a bracket that I made to attach the 2 ready brake cable too. My Captiva does not turn brake lights on when key is in accessory position. The connectors seen in picture below connect to a LED light that hangs from sun visor. I can see this light in my rear view camera. Power is supplied to LED and switch from a 12 volt plug in luggage area of car.

I do not keep switch and light hooked up all the time. Usually first part of trip to make sure everything is working correctly.
Others have done a similar mod by using a relay that works off car brake switch. Some cars have brake lights working anytime brake pedal is pressed. Indicator light can be attached to the high brake light on rear of car.
