Question about 2004 Nissan Frontier
I had the same problem. In my case it was not the brake pedal switch contact which I replaced anyways as it is very inexpensive on Autozone. Your brake pedal makes contact with this switch with a round little plastic piece and when this piece breaks after many years of use, the hole left on the break pedal does not push the contact switch thus your brake lights stay on. Go to a Nissan dealer PARTS and tell them your problem. The solution is less than $2 and even though is a little hard to fix, you will be happy when you are done.
Hint: Push the brake pedal as you are installing this little plastic thingie.

First check to see how much brake fluid you have in the master cylinder. If low.add some and re-check. Also check the e-brake lever. Push the lever down and observe the "brake light" to se if it flickers or goes out. There is a switch at the bottom of the e-brake lever, which will make the brake light come on, when you pull it up. Check it and let me know what you find.

I had this same issue on my 97 Honda Accord SE, but when I changed the Brake Light Safety Switch, the problem was not solved! Turns out the small blue plastic "pin" that presses on the brake light safety switch when the pedal is not being pressed, was broken off and could not put pressure on the brake light safety switch.. I had to rig it up so that it would work until I could go get myself a new brake pedal and have it put on. ( new pedal needed because that pin and its housing are one peice with the whole brake pedal.)
