Viper alarm brake wire

Does anyone know a spot, other than the brake pedal to tap into the light green brake wire on an 06? I was having issues with my brake lights not coming on intermittently, and I figured out that the installer used a t-tap into that wire, and the movement from the brake pedal was causing that t-tap to cut into the wire and short out at times, I removed the wire and fixed the connection at the pedal and brake lights are working good now. But I want to find an alternative spot to hook into that light green wire, where there is no movement (and use a different connector too.) thanks

I will look there, at the sjb, because going further up that wire ain't gonna happen, I am just not flexible enough to work up there any further. Thanks
