It sounds like The switch on brake pedal is stuck in.look up in the foot well a little way up you will see a switch that pushes onto brake pedal when the brake pedal is pushed it releases a little button that activates lights.if button is sticking lights will stay on. Give a squirt of wd40 and give button a few pushes then check lights hope this helps
probably switch at the brake pedal, have somebody stand behind and lift the pedal and see if it goes out, check the switch it may be out of line with the pedal. most likely it works by a button that is pushed when you push the pedal. if it is not this switch then you may have a short somewhere across the brake wire
You most likely have a faulty stop light switch. I have provided you with a couple of pictures. The first one in black and white is where you will find the switch and the second one is a picture of what your switch should look like but may not be what is in the car but you will get the idea. What happens is when you press the brake pedal a little button on the switch opens and when it opens it completes an electrical circuit and turns the brake lights on. when you let off the brake pedal the pedal comes back up and pushes that button back in to close the circuit. it is most likeley stuck open and not pushing back in when the pedal goes back up. When you see it you will understand better. I hope this helps you and good luck.
Behind the arm of the brake pedal on older cars is a black box with a push button that turns on your lights. You maybe able to free it up by pulling it out, but most of the time they have to be replaced as there is no way to open them up and clean them up.
IF YOU ARE SAYING THAT YOU HAVE REPLACED THE BRAKE SWITCH AND NOW THE BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON THEN THE PROBLEM IS THAT YOU DID NOT SCREW THE BRAKE SWITCH IN FAR ENOUGH.IT HAS A BUTTON ON THE TIP OF THE SWITCH AND IF THAT BUTTON DOES NOT REST ON THE BRAKE PEDAL,YOUR BRAKE LIGHTS WILL STAY ON.WHEN YOU PUSH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL THE BUTTON POPS OUT OF THE SWITCH WHICH MAKES THE LIGHTS TURN ON.WHEN YOU RELEASE THE BRAKE PEDAL,IT GOES BACK UP AND PUSHES THE BUTTON BACK IN WHICH MAKES THE LIGHTS GO OFF.ALSO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR ELECTIRCAL PLUG IS CONNECTED SECURELY AND ALL THE WAY PLUGGED IN.I HOPE THIS INFO HELPS, TAKE CARE AND GOOD LUCK, MANNY
It sounds like the brake light switch down on the brake pedal is stuck and it needs replaced,Its got like a push button setup when you apply the brakes the brake pedal pushes the brake switch button in brake lights come on and when you relase the brake pedal the button on the switch comes back out and brake lights go out but if switch is worn out or sticking the lights will stay lit even when off the brake pedal so just replace the brake light switch down on the brake pedal.
It sounds like the brake switch on the brake pedal arm is stuck its like a push button type switch when you press the brake pedal down it pushes the button in on the switch which makes the brake lights come on,when you take your foot off the brake pedal the button is supposed to come back out if it doesn't the brake lights will stay on.
