Make sure the button is working, it may need to be replaced. with your foot off the brake peddle, it is on upper part of brake peddle arm. when you let off brake peddle it pushes button in to shut lights off. it may just be stuck in, spray a little lubracant on it if it's stuck and push in manually several times to loosen.

Well from what i have been reading on is that it could also be a blowen light or inproper lights b/c they need to be a dual filament bulb if there is a single one put in, it could connect both the terminals and turn the lights on thought this might help saying i am in the same bout as you lol .

The brake switch in my 95 nissan altima get hot after several stop and go and went bad. I changed it, and does the same. I have to start the engine in neutral because of that problem. can you h

You probably have a shorted Brake pedal switch under the dash. This is part of the interlock system which is suppose to stop you from starting the car without your foot on the brake.

The switch should be on the brake pedal lever. It is common for feet to hit it and crack, break, or move it out of position. You need to replace and adjust thisimportant part.

I hope my solution is helpful. Often the rear brake lights do not light.

No brake lights

One of three things: bulbs burnt out, brake switch bad, or no power to lights.

Take the bulbs out and test for continuity or replace. Check fuses, and/or check brake light switch typically located on the brake pedal shaft.

'97 nissan altima, brake lights not working, wire

Lets keep it simple if the wiring harness is in good condition lets not look at that... first check your fuse if the fuse is good... check for power... if you have power coming and going from the fuse then check your brake switch ( located under the dash) attached to brake pedal. Please make sure your light bulbs are both good also. If your brake light switch is good and you have tried everything else it is either going to be in your 4 way switch or wiring harness

I have a 1995 Nissan altima that has brake lights that no longer work. I have replaced both lamps, fuses and replaced the brake switch. Is there anything else I can try next?

look for a short in the wires. If you have done all of that this can be the only thing that would keep you lights from working. Take the wires leading from the break lights and follow them to see if you have a break in the wire and if so un hanes the wires from both ends and replace them. I hope this helps.
