When you depress the brake pedal, the brake pedal will move away from the brake light switch and cause a close circuit and the brake lamps light up. There is a rubber bunk on the pedal which pushes against the brake light switch to shut it off when you release the brake pedal. Most likely this rubber bunk has either fallen off or disintegrated leaving a hole in the brake pedal so there is nothing to push against the switch to shut it off. Look up the brake pedal until you see the brake light switch, then depress the brake pedal to see if the rubber bunk is still there. It is easy to replace. Or you can use some double sided adhesive tape and a coin and stick the coin over the hole in the brake pedal.

You most likely need to replace your brake switch, which is a
a $8 part. If you look up along the brake peddle you will see it depressing a switch. on the end of that switch is a electrical connector that you can press on one side to remove.
Once removed your brake lights will be disconected and your ABS
light should go off. You then need to replace the switch that it pluged in to.

randyref: The most common problem with the Nissan's when it came to brake lights staying on, was a little plastic stopper button
which is located up near the top of the brake pedal arm.
If you follow the brake pedal arm up, you will find the brake light switch. If you push the pedal down, feel where the brake light switch is suppose to contact the pedal frame.
You will probably discover that there is a hole there instead of something that the switch was to come in contact with so it could be compressed which in turn, opened the circuit causing the brake lights to go out.
The part is available from Nissan and usually is stocked because it is a common problem. I stock 3-4 in my shop and I'm not a dealer.
The part it self is a round semi soft clear plastic disc with a small button which you push through the hole in the pedal frame, where it snaps in place.
I'm willing to bet that this will solve your problem. Check it and get back to me.

Your brake light switch is eith stuck or gone bad. It is located on the brake pedal and you can try to jiggle it to see if it will free itself and turn the lights off or you will need to replace it. It's a pretty easy job and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON
At the top of the brake pedal, there are 2 small hard plastic fittings that fit into 2 holes. When those plastic fittings get old, they get brittle and break and then fall out. Those plastic fittings are what push against the brake light sensor. So when they fall out, there is nothing that "trips" the brake light sensor. They cost 10 bucks at nissan. Try that first. Bet that does it. It did for me !!
