I have a 2004 kia amanti and I accidently hit the emergency brake going down the road and notice that the brake light was on so I pulled off the road about a mile down the road and release the handle and took back off. When i got home I notice later that the brake lights were on so I went to check the dash and it was off so I engage and release the brake several times and that didn't help so then I unhook the battery cables for about one hour and hook them back and the brake lights came back on. Is it a sensor? email@example.com

Depends how much....the thermostat opens and closes to allow coolant to flow, this may cause it and in my car it makes a difference if I am climbing a hill or going down in the winter it is most noticeable.
If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.
find the brake pedal.. follow the rod behind it up under the dash..and you will see a pressure switch there..it can be adjusted for travel but you can also add a return spring on the pedal shaft to pull the pedal back up..check for operation and adjust as needed..good luck..
Could be that brake switch is sticking. on most cars it is located above brake pedal arm. Most are easy to change and the cost it not that bad....please rate this post and good luck and hope info helps.
For the person, asking about spark plugs... These modles are money pitts when comes to standard maint.! I own a 2004 amanti& have had nothin but issues once 100,000 miles hit. Was going to do plugs myself, but one cant. Easily anyway. The reason you dont see them is because they are under the engine manifold! Great design by Kia, not! Youre looking @ $400-$600 repair for just spark plugs that go for $25 a set. Most mechs wont do it bc of the time/labor. Might be looking @ a dealer repair, if thats the case go ahead add $200 to that quote. I sold mine& will never by Kia again. Good luck!
