Check behind your brake pedal. I don't remember what the parts were called but the same thing happened to me. When you put your foot on the brake there is a plastic or rubber circle attached to the brake pedal that comes in contact with a switch. It causes the brake lights to come on. When you take your foot off the brake it turns the switch off and the brake light goes off. Over time this rubber or plastic circle gets worn and it is still in contact with the switch so it remains on. When this first happened to me I was able to adjust the switch so that the pad came completely away from the switch when I took my foot off the brake. The second time it happened I had to replace the pad on the pedal. I actually made my own because it looked like it was part of the pedal. I also had to replace the switch another time. The switch cost under $20.00 from a parts store.
Try this before you do any repairs or sp[end any other money. Make sure that vehicle is on a flat surface. Start vehicle and Push down on brakes while holding brake put vehicle in neutral. Still holding brakes in NEUTRAL, Engage 4x4, it should work. If it doesn't get back to me. Good Luck. If I fixed ya leave me a FIX YA comment
Power Brake Booster is bad and will need to be replaced. The diaphram leaks when you push on the pedal which robs the engine of vacuum and causes it to stall and the brakes are hard because with a bad booster you get no power assist.
